Aviation adventures are coming your way! EAA Chapter 690 is offering an immersive aviation focused STEM program at the chapter hangar located at the Gwinnett County Airport in Lawrenceville, Georgia. The 2020 camp runs from June 15-19, with a free Young Eagles flight on Saturday, June 20th.
Students in seventh through twelfth grades may apply. Topics covered include Aircraft Construction Methods, Principles of Aeronautics, R/C Modeling, Helicopter Flight, Ground and Flight Instruction and visits to select facilities located at Briscoe Field.
Our Aviation Focused STEM Summer Camp program has been carefully planned to give a 12 year old six years of camp experiences. These experiences are provided by EAA 690 and by the national EAA organization in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Our vision is that a 12 year old will attend our "Alpha" STEM camp in his/her first year. In the second year at the age of 13 the camper would attend an Air Academy Camp in Oshkosh. The chapter works hard to help those campers going to Oshkosh with expenses. The national EAA also offers Camperships for those attending their camps. If you have a child that you want to send to an Oshkosh Camp please let us know so we can work through the process with you. When a camper reaches the age of 14, they are ready for our "Bravo" STEM camp and the experiences it brings. At 15 it would be off to Oshkosh for a new Air Academy experience. Upon reaching 16 the camper is ready for our "Charlie" STEM flight training experience and the next year it is off the Oshkosh once more for their most advanced camp and the Air Venture experience as well.
The cost is $300 for Alpha & Bravo Camps for the week. The cost of Charlie Camp (for serious students seeking to begin preparations for a private pilot rating) is $375. To reserve a spot in the Camp of your choice a $50 non-refundable deposit is required at the time of application. You may attach a check with your application or pay by credit card. Camp begins at 9:00 a.m. and ends at 4:00 p.m. each day.
