KALAMAZOO, Mich. - Kids looking for a spring break full of fun need look no further! The Air Zoo is offering full- and half-day spring break camps for kids of all ages.
March 30, April 4 or April 6 from 1-4 p.m.
Campers will build and launch model rockets (weather permitting) while learning about the history of space exploration. They'll also go on an adventurous scavenger hunt around the Air Zoo and explore the Space: Dare to Dream exhibit. The half-day camp costs $50 per child and includes a model rocket (with an engine and igniter), a juice, a snack, and an Ultimate Ace wristband package.
March 30, April 4 or April 6 from 9:30 p.m.-4 p.m.
The full-day camp includes everything in the half-day camp, plus kids will build soda straw and Alka-Seltzer rockets, and have free time to enjoy the Air Zoo's rides and attractions. This camp costs $75 per child and includes a model rocket (with an engine and igniter), a juice, a snack, lunch with a beverage, a T-shirt and an Ultimate Ace wristband package.
Kids who are 8 years old and younger must be accompanied by a responsible chaperone. Chaperones will receive a complimentary Co-Pilot wristband package along with a juice, a snack and lunch with a beverage (only for the full-day camp).
Each camp is limited to 25 kids per date. For more information or to register for a spring break camp, call 269.350.2848.
