Are you ready to soar to new heights and discover the thrilling world of drones? Introducing a New Camp - Drone Academy!

In Scouts, we believe in providing exciting and innovative opportunities for all youth. That's why we've created the Drone Academy, where the outdoors, adventure and technology meet!

Our Drone Academy is designed to empower youth with the skills and knowledge to operate drones safely and responsibly. Under the guidance of trained instructors, youth will learn the fundamentals of drone flight, aerial photography, and even programming!

Through engaging hands-on activities and challenges, youth will develop critical thinking, problem-solving, and collaboration skills. They'll learn how to plan missions, navigate obstacles, and capture breathtaking images and videos from the sky! And best yet, gain the knowledge needed to obtain their Federal Basic Drone License.

Imagine the adrenaline rush of maneuvering their drones through an exhilarating outdoor obstacle course, testing their piloting abilities and precision! All while experiencing traditional outdoor scouting adventures.
