Mini Camps at TASM

 

A 1-day aviation mini-camp is available the day before Thanksgiving. The November 23 camp will be divided into two age groups, providing hands-on activities and fun for students in grades 1-6.

 

 

There are also two 1-day camps available in December before the holidays!

 

The December 21 camp provides campers an opportunity to explore tinkering with tools as well as toys and the December 22 camp focuses on weather investigating wind, precipitation, air pressure, and storms while performing cool experiments!
