model rocket lifts off

Guardian Youth Rocket Retreat

blast off

April 26-28, 2019

This weekend is a “blast” and suited for guardians & youth who have an interest in the science of rockets.  They will learn about and build their own model rocket over the course of the weekend and, ultimately, enjoy the thrill of the launch.  Each guardian-youth rocket is launched one at a time.  Rockets are retrieved and taken home as a keepsake with everything needed to launch it again.

Spending time away from home is a great way to strengthen the bond between guardians & youth and Camp Kekoka is a beautiful setting and the perfect place to spend quality time together. Let us take care of all the meals and coordinating so all you have to do is enjoy.

You can choose to bunk in one of our new cabins with other guardian-youth pairs, or bring your tent and camp on our lawn. When it comes to cabins guardians & youth will share the cabin with other guardians & youth pairs of the same gender.  In the case of a male guardian bringing a female youth or female guardian bringing a male youth there will be a cabin for the same gender youth to stay with trained Camp Kekoka staff.

Cost: $235 per guardian & youth pair.  This fee covers lodging, 4 meals, 1 model rocket, launch pad, & electric start that you can take home. Each additional youth is $75 and each additional rocket for each additional youth is $35.

Ages: Youth 9 – 15 / Guardians 18 & older
