Summer Camp 2023
Our educational 5-day camps are all about racing, fun and learning. For the first half of the day, kids get to race around the track learning basic principles like “the line,” acceleration, braking, & race craft. After a provided lunch, the kids will build, program and run experiments using Lego Mindstorm Robots with the EV3 Software platform. The racing portion is taught by actual racers who have real world racing experience. The STEM portion of the day is taught by a former Kirkwood School District math & science teacher that has been working with students for over 30 years, with a Masters Degree in Middle Level Education.
LEGO MINDSTORMS Education EV3 engages kids in Computer Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. Campers will build, program, and test their solutions based on real-life robotics technology. Campers will be introduced to robotics with a very current and real-world theme -- traveling to and living on Mars! Campers will work as scientists and engineers as they progress through the Space Challenges that fully integrate science, technology, engineering, and math concepts while promoting creative problem solving, communication, & teamwork.

COVID-19 HEALTH & SAFETY CONCERNS (Please note these rules may change as we get closer to summer)
Your child's safety remains our number one priority. Victory Raceway adheres to all CDC, local and state guidelines. Hand sanitizer is available throughout the building and staff members are cleaning continuously throughout all public hours.
An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. COVID-19 is a very contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, senior citizens and visitors with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable.
If a camper starts having symptoms associated with COVID at home, we request that they take a COVID test as soon as possible and let your camp instructor know. If these symptoms begin while at camp, we will require the camper to be quarantined and a parent/guardian or somebody on the emergency pick up list come by as soon as possible for pick up. A negative COVID test will be required to return to camp.
If a family member, or somebody who is close to your camper tests positive for COVID, we will require proof of a negative COVID test upon drop off every morning.
We have shared specific instructions with our employees on the importance of washing their hands and staying home if they feel sick. In the past we have always had hand sanitizer stations throughout the camp area, and that will continue on with frequent reminders to campers to sanitize their hands. Each camper will be assigned a small cubicle for the week to store belongings, as well as a sanitized helmet, full-face head sock and neck brace. We also want to assure you that Victory Raceway walk in guests will not be anywhere near the campers area. We are in a large building and space where social distancing is easily obtainable. The only time Victory Raceway guests would be near campers would be if campers need to use the restroom.
We will have pre-packaged lunches (except for Pizza Hut's). When campers are checked in, they will select 2 snacks to go with their lunches for that day plus an afternoon snack. Plates will be prepared by a camp instructor.
