Aviation Camp 2022

June 7 - June 10

For the first time ever, and to plant the seed for future students of our Aviation Technology program, we are hosting a camp in collaboration with OU Sooner Flight Academy, the Kohaw Foundation, and Community Sponsors including our presenting sponsor, King Aerospace. We will be getting camp ‘off the ground’ this summer with a group of 30 incoming 5th and 6th graders in SouthernTech’s district. If this is a successful adventure, we hope to continue to offer these types of summer exploration opportunities for our future students. This camp is fully funded by our generous donors and volunteers so that ONLY $25 is required by families for a 4-day camp including the Young Eagles Flying opportunity on Friday. We will provide lunch, field trip transportation, a t-shirt, and supplies for activities. The camp will focus on space, aircraft design, Newton’s Laws of Motion, space shuttles, space stations, and aerodynamics. Hands-on activities include model rocket creation, kite flying and building, building space stations in a pool and lots of outdoor access. The Young Eagle’s volunteer pilot program will allow campers to fly alongside local pilots before completing camp.

Camp is held primarily at SouthernTech starting Tuesday June 7 and ending at the airpark on Friday June 10. Friday will be a half day but lunch will still be included.
