Tuesday, 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM

Campers learn the basics of hang gliding in a thirty minute “ground school” with one of our USHPA certified instructors. We use props and demonstrations to teach about parts of the glider, how to steer and land, and some local history on the sport. We then head out to the sand dunes at Jockey’s ridge where each camper gets 3-5 flights in a hang glider down the dunes! We have one instructor on each side of the hang glider holding on to a tether to ensure a safe flight, while still allowing your pilot in training to practice their pitch and roll controls.

On day one, parents must complete a dune hang gliding waiver for their camper(s). We encourage, but do not require, parental supervision for the remainder of the camp. 

Wednesday, 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM

Day two of the Fall Kids Hang Gliding lesson begins with a kite building clinic, where each camper constructs a simple parafoil kite from recycled paper. After completion, we then head out to the sand dunes to fly the kites. After kite flying, each camper will get 3-5 flights on a hang glider to build on the skills from Day One.

Thursday, 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM

Head out to the dunes for an intro lesson in stunt kite flying  (~30 min).

We’ll then complete our final hang gliding training session. Each camper gets 3-5 more flights.
