You will also learn about flight by working with remote control airplanes, flight simulator, rockets, paper airplanes, kites and studying flight in birds with the center’s raptors. Campers will also get a chance to join the EAA Young Eagles, which is an organization with the sole mission to introduce and inspire kids in the world of aviation.
