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 prevalent in recreation, business, and technology. Our week-long day camps offer opportunities for rising 6th to 9th-graders to fly and build drones while learning about many aspects of the drone industry. Campers even get to learn code and keep their own mini quadcopter!
