A Week in the Life of Drone Camp

Participating in a camp with Triangle Drone Academy is the ideal way for students to explore their interest in drones, science, technology, engineering, arts, math, aerial photography, videography, flight skills and so much more.

Drones are emerging in recreation, business, and technology. Our week-long day camps offer opportunities for campers, aged 10-14, to fly and build drones while learning about many aspects of the drone industry. Campers even get to keep their own mini quadcopter!
