Our EAA Chapter 5 Summer Youth Aviation Camp 2023 is officially in the Logbook! This year’s camp, specially designed camp for kids in grades 6 through 10 with a real interest in AVIATION, was deemed a huge success!
The summer camp was held at the Geauga County Airport in Hangar 3 on July 10th through 14th from 9:00 am to 3:45 pm. Students actively participated in learning about aerodynamics, parts of a plane, flight operations, careers in aviation; developed skills in map reading, riveting, woodworking & building; and were given opportunities to tour the airport facilities, build a drone and to “fly” on flight simulators in the Flight Simulator Lab. There were daily activities such as glider flying contests & scientific experimentation, as well as recreational fun activities too.
Space for the camp was limited to 18 students to allow for more hands-on opportunities. Click on the link below to view a highlight’s video from a previous Summer Youth Aviation Camp. https://youtu.be/XE2FVzOGmGk
If you didn't get in this year, stay tuned for next year's dates to be announced in early March. The 2024 camp will be open to new campers only.
