Established in 2011, WNY Aviation Adventure Camp is an exciting, weeklong overnight camping experience for 10 high school youth in ninth or 10th grade. The purpose of this camp is to promote careers in aviation and expose students to the wonder of flight.
Students will also learn how aviation plays a role in the world of Math, Science and Technology. This innovative educational program provides on average, 20 hours of flight time, as well as classroom instruction with hands–on activities designed to teach team work, decision-making, leadership skills as well as career opportunities in aviation.
WNY Aviation Adventure Camp will provide area youth with a unique and highly interactive opportunity to experience the exciting world of aviation.
