An Introduction to Aviation for Kids

Kids love WAAAM Camp!Learn and have fun at the WAAAM Air & Auto Museum as we explore early aviation and what it takes to keep an airplane in the air.

Students will be surrounded by airplanes, pilots, cars and knowledge in this 4 day camp!

Building a glider to fly teaches aerodynamics. Talking over the airwaves like a bonafide pilot using FAA procedures is public speaking on a whole different plain! We will tour the Restoration Shop and put our hands and skills to work on a project that will be displayed in the museum for years to come! And so much more too – a bit of cockpit time & a ride in an old Model T auto for instance!!!

As an added bonus participants will earn a "Student Solo Membership" to the museum that will allow the participant admission to WAAAM for the rest of the year for free.

Who: Ages 9-12.

Where: Western Antique Aeroplane and Automobile Museum

When: July 10-13, 2017

How Much: $120 per student (includes all materials and a snack each day)
