New For 2017

Robotics by LocoRobo

This year we are introducing LocoRobo for our robotics program. The course we will be providing has been developed by award winning teachers and educators from Drexel University and other top schools and includes coding, robotics, sensor physics, control theory and computer science.

We will be using the LocoXtreme robots that can be programmed to move and respond to input from Ultrasonic eyes, Positional gyroscopes and accelerometer and temperature sensor. The computer interface to the rovers also allows groups of units to 'talk to each-other' to synchronize activity.

As part of an advanced lesson we are able to program Camp Watonka's drones as a cool introduction to current 'delivery drone' tech.

Robotic systems use parallel and event based control programming and our counselors are ready to help you develop these modern skills.

As these are new activities for 2017, the photos and videos are not from Camp Watonka and may feature elements that we won't be able to squeeze into our two week program. Feel free to drop us a line with any questions about this or any of our other programs.
