Activity Locations

Camp activities take place within classrooms, simulator labs, exhibit spaces and outside areas at and around the Hiller Aviation Museum. Please ensure that children are ready for both indoor and outdoor activities each day.

Grouping by Age

Campers will be divided by age into multiple groups of 12 or fewer. Hands-on projects and flight simulation scenarios may vary by grade level. Please indicate any grouping requests on the registration form. Sibling grouping requests are not recommended unless the siblings are within 2 grade levels of each other.

Instruction

Campers are supervised by two Education staff members per twelve campers. Aviation Camp staff are aviation education professionals who complete annual pre-camp training and LiveScan fingerprint checks. Additional Museum staff members and docents work with campers as necessary to ensure an exceptional camp experience.

Food

All campers should bring a snack for morning break, and full day campers should bring a lunch (insulated coolers or lunch boxes are ideal). Snack and lunch breaks are supervised time, with aviation-themed films shown at lunch and a variety of short, structured activities provided during free choice periods.
