Rocket Launch

It was the second day in a row of sunshine for us at camp......hooray! A perfect day for launching rockets. I started this tradition at camp when I began working there four years ago as a way to have the older kids enjoy Arts and Crafts a bit more. I order kits from a website and the children who are 7-8 grade build the rockets. They're fairly simple, taking them about 2 hours to build. They decorated them this year with glitter. I banned feathers after the incident last year where one of the rockets covered in feathers caught fire. We had 100% success. The rest of the camp sits on the beach and cheers as we launch the rockets off the docks. It's a good time and the kids really enjoy it.....and so do I!
