What is AeroCamp?

AeroCamp is a day camp program designed to give young individuals a unique opportunity to explore the vast and exciting world of aviation and aerospace at their local airport.

Children learn firsthand about the dynamics of flight and aircraft and careers in aviation. Every camper is given the opportunity to fly an aircraft if they choose to. However, flight time is only a fraction of the AeroCamp experience and is not required to have a great learning adventure. Experiences often includes site visits to various aviation-related organizations. Camps generally run for a period of five days during summer and select seasonal dates.
