Kayak Camp!
Paddling Skills for Teens
Youth Ages 12 - 17

No previous kayaking experience is needed for this fun-filled water-orientated camp! Our experienced guides will introduce participants to basic water safety and sea kayaking skills including: types of craft, outfitting & gear, wet exits, self and assisted rescue, key paddle strokes, and bracing. But it’s not all work - expect to get wet and have fun playing games like ‘kayak polo’ and ‘kayak sponge tag.’ Participants must be comfortable with deep, over-your-head water while wearing a personal flotation device. They must also be able to pull oneself up onto the deck of a pool from the deep end without use of steps or ladders. This class is an excellent intro to kayaking, but does not imply any certification or infer any skill qualification. Min 4/Max 8

What To Bring: hat with a brim, towel, sunscreen, and water.  Wear comfortable clothes that can get wet (synthetics dry faster) and/or a bathing suit.

Lead Instructor: Travis Kulcsar is starting his 7th season with Whidbey Island Kayaking. He is a white water raft guide, turned sea kayak guide who has paddled around the world, from the Grand Canyon to New Zealand.  He loves coming to Whidbey every year to lead tours and sharing this magical place with others.

Dates/Time: Mon-Fri | Aug 7-11 | 2-4:30pm
Location: Mon-Thu will at Goss Lake Public Boat launch; Fri at the Langley Marina.
Fee: $130.00

 

Archery
Sessions for Teens

Whidbey Islanders have the privilege and the opportunity to learn archery from a national level coach! This clinic will cover proper shooting techniques, equipment selection, training and plenty of hands-on fun. This clinic is designed to present the lifetime recreational activity of archery in a broad perspective for future use as a recreational pursuit. Archery will go rain or shine, so students should come prepared for the weather. Participants must be able to stay focused for the entire session.

Instructor: Bill Stinson has been a professional archery coach and sports educator for 30 years. He holds certification from USA Archery (Level 3), National Archery in the Schools trainer and NFAA Elite Coach and has coached national levels competitions. Email: gapi2nwa@hotmail.com. Min 6/Max 12

Intro to Underwater Robotics
Exploring ROVs and SW waters
Youth Entering Grades 6 - 9

Have fun learning about Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs, also known as underwater robots) in a safe and collaborative work space. Become familiar with buoyancy, thrusters, and manipulators as well as motor control and electrical circuits. Working in groups, you will assemble your ROV and fly it underwater by the end of the week.  Hands-on experience with soldering irons, heat guns, and other tools you can’t use on the dining room table included. Min 3/Max 12

Bring: Water, lunch and snacks.

Instructor: Ashley McConnaughey, mentor for championship underwater robotics team. atlantissteam@gmail.com, (425) 320-7849

Dates/Time: Mon-Fri | Aug 14-18 | 10am-3pm
Location: Atlantis STEAM space at St. Peter’s Church, 6309 Wilson Pl, Clinton and other locations around South Whidbey.
Fee: $280*
*Additional $50 materials fee paid directly to instructor at first session. Provides various parts and tools for groups to make an underwater robot

 

Intermediate Underwater Robotics
Youth Entering Grades 6 - 9

Working in teams, students will engineer and build a working underwater robot expanding upon the skills from Beginning Underwater Robotics.  Focus will be on adding a camera to pilot, working on motor controllers (upgrading from switches), and developing manipulators. We will fly the ROVs in land-based pools and if opportunity and weather cooperates, in SW waters. Min 3 / Max 10

Prerequisite: Intro to Underwater Robotics, or by permission of instructor.

Bring: Water, lunch and snacks.

Instructors: Ashley McConnaughey, and mentored by international champion ROV team members, atlantissteam@gmail.com, (425) 320-7849

Location:
AtlantisSteam space at St. Peter’s Church at 6309 S Wilson Pl, Clinton
Fee: $280*
*Additional $50 materials fee paid directly to instructor at first session provides components for your team’s remotely operated vehicle (ROV).

 

Robotics for Competition
Making Parts Work
Youth Entering Grades 6 - 12

This class is specifically built for students wishing to participate in the coming year’s underwater robotics competitions.  In a week of building and testing, students will experiment with creating *parts* of a working robot using various materials: from re-purposed MacGyver style materials to off-the-shelf parts. Learning circuits, motor controllers, pistons, actuators, electronics soldering, and mechanics, students will utilize these skills to build and test their ideas. While the skills learned are applicable for any basic robot, all parts will be for underwater robots.Min 3/Max 12

Prerequisites: Desire to compete in underwater robotics and prior Atlantis student; new students must have permission of the instructor and serious interest in robotics.

Bring: Water, lunch and snacks.

Instructors: Class mentors have coached international championship underwater robotics teams. Teachers include Ashley McConnaughey, and mentored by international champion ROV team members.  atlantissteam@gmail.com, (425) 320-7849

Dates/Time: Mon-Fri | Aug 21-25 | 10am-3pm
Location: Atlantis STEAM space at St. Peter’s Church 6309 Wilson Pl, Clinton .
Fee: $100
*Additional $50 materials fee paid directly to instructor at first session. Provides robotics parts to investigate.
