The camp, sponsored by the University of Illinois Extension – Macoupin County and the Illinois 4-H Foundation, attracted youth from six Macoupin County communities to learn about space, aeronautics, engineering and the earth. Rockets were the focus of the day with the youth making both a bubble rocket and Estes model rocket. Shirley Emerson, coordinator of the Family Nutrition Program with the U of I Extension, helped the youth make their own lunch while talking about hand washing and the food pyramid.

The finale of the camp was the launching of the bubble rockets. Information for the day camp was supplied by the 4-H program, which has three levels of aerospace projects.
