This action-packed program is designed for both the novice and experienced drone enthusiasts. Full of excitement, teamwork, learning, and fun, campers enjoy one of the world’s fastest-growing sports, Drone Obstacle Course Racing. Throughout the week, campers learn about the basic safety of drone flying and the history behind drone racing as a sport. As the week progresses, campers will advance through various skill challenges, learning how to perform different exercises and maneuvers to become familiar with the drone’s speed and agility. Campers will use iPads and remote controls to pitch, yaw, and roll their drones through some of Drobots’ most daring obstacle courses. Participants will utilize their creative minds to help design the obstacle layout and then build the obstacle course in preparation for the camp’s final activity and competition.
"Great work! Our kids are always so excited to go back to camp at WES. As with the school experience, WES is a special and welcoming place. In fact, we canceled a week at another camp because our kids wanted to go to WES camp instead."
"The facilities are great and the camp counselors are wonderful with each and every camper. When I drop of my son, I know that he is going to have a great time."
"We can't wait to sign-up! Before last year's camp ended, my children were asking to do it again this summer."
"It is exactly what a camp should be: FUN!"
"My kids loved Summer@WES. Each morning they get up enthusiastically and are excited to be with the other campers and counselors. It is the best camp they have attended."
"I used to sign up for multiple camps because I thought my child would appreciate new settings, but now I sign up for multiple sessions at Summer@WES. All the campers and camp staff are extremely welcoming, and my child always felt relaxed and excited for camp."
"It is awesome!"
"Summer@WES needs to market itself more. The camp is just too good to be kept a secret!"
"I wish school could be this cool!"
"My child had a terrible experience at another camp, primarily due to poor inattentive aftercare, which was in contrast to the attentive aftercare provided by WES. In addition, my child loved the themed weeks in the Dragon Day Camp and learned a tremendous amount in each of the sessions."
"My twins really enjoy dragon quest camp. They like the fact that they got to chose what they wanted to do every day."
