The West Springfield Park & Recreation Department, in partnership with Hobby Quest of Western Mass, is excited to offer quests in magic and aviation this summer, for children ENTERING Grades K-8 in September 2020, will be held daily from 9:00am - 4:00pm at the UNICO Building, located in Mittineague Park.  Hobby Quest will focus on Magic Mornings & Aviation Afternoons!

Magic Mornings: children will dive into different magical performances such as stage illusion, stand up magic, close up magic, mentalism, street magic and more! Children will hone their performance skills, find their unique style and perform for each other during the last day!

Aviation Afternoons: children will learn about the science of flight, Sir Isaac Newton’s role in flight and the laws of motions. Children will also be introduced to the Wright Brothers and build models after their first designs!

Sign up for both sessions as we will have new projects/tricks each week! Parents will need to provide their own transportation to and from, provide their own lunch/snack and bring a water bottle for their child. 

Hobby Quests will be small group offerings (no more than 10 to a group) that will remain together for the entire week while adhering to State social distancing guidelines. Masks are required but can be removed during activities in which 6 feet of separation is maintained
