Outdoor Recreation is ready to teach youth how to build and launch rockets.Youth Building Rockets

An average rocket build will take approximately two (2) hours for a group of about 20. Rocket builds and launches will take place on two separate days, therefore plan to schedule a launch 1 or 2 days after the build.

Launches can be conducted on site if you have a large, safe open area to launch. If not, launches will be conducted at Balloon Fiesta Park, in the North Parking Lot. For a launch at Balloon Fiesta Park, reservations are required no less than 7 days prior to planned launch. Rockets must be launched in the North Parking Lot. 

Life skills learned include persistence, reading, following directions, cooperation and basic science.

A minimum of 8 participants are required, with a maximum of 20 per session.
