Get ready to pitch, yaw, roll, and thrust around the Drone Arena in this exhilarating camp program. Throughout the week, campers will enjoy one of the world’s fastest-growing sports, Drone Racing. Campers will first learn about the basic safety of drone flying before fine-tuning their hand-eye coordination skills and free fly the drone. Campers will advance through an abundance of skill challenges, both in the air and on the ground, as they learn how to perform various exercises and maneuvers to become familiar with the drone’s speed and agility. Each day, teams of “flight squads” post up against one another in friendly competition as they race against not only one another but also the clock. Pilots will first maneuver the drone through creative yet compact obstacle courses before taking on the challenge of flying for speed.

Join us for this fun-filled full-day camp that combines three Summer at KEY favorites! The morning will be spent at Fusco Park, Key School’s athletic facility located just two miles away from the main campus with a tennis camp designed for players of all levels. Time will be spent on a variety of activities, drills, and games focused on improving and/or learning all tennis strokes, learning rules and strategy, competitive play (singles and doubles), fitness, and most importantly having fun. Tennis activities and drills will be catered to and adjusted to campers’ abilities and interests. The Tennis Camp will be run by Coach George Martin IV who has decades of tennis playing and teaching experience. Transportation by bus to and from Fusco Park and Key School will be provided. Campers will need to bring their own tennis rackets. Campers will return to Key School’s main campus at noon for lunch and then enjoy an afternoon of Nerf Madness and Dodgeball. They will join their friends for epic Nerf battles and work on Nerf tactics. We have a full supply of darts and Nerf blasters to use during the week. Campers may bring their own blasters to camp, but Key School is not responsible for any items brought from home. Goggles will be provided and are required for all campers to wear. Then, onto dodgeball where they will have a blast running, ducking, throwing, and dodging around the court. Many variations of the game will be played throughout the week. Good sportsmanship will be emphasized at all times.
