2022 Summer Camp 

Unfortunately, the College of Aviation has made the difficult decision to cancel all aviation summer camp offerings for 2022.  Much like the rest of the world, we are experiencing significant staff shortages which have impacted our ability to plan, develop, and execute a great experience for our campers.  Coupled with the unsure nature of the world, and our inability to guarantee activities and a vibrant experience for the participants, we have made the sad decision to pause the camps for the upcoming year. 

Our goal is to give the program a rest for this summer and commit ourselves to reestablishing the camps for the Summer of 2023.  Not only do we plan to be back, but we plan to be even better than before!  The added time should allow the return of our industry partners to full participation.  We will also be using this time to make sure the programming of the camp continues to grow and provide the most enjoyable and educational experience for the participants. 

Thank you very much for your interest, previous partnership and understanding.  If you have any questions, concerns, or need further explanations, please do not hesitate to contact me at your earliest convenience.
