This summer your child can enjoy high-flying adventures during Summer Training School at the Alberta Aviation Museum. Kids aged 6-12 can spend a full week at historic Blatchford Field discovering the exciting world of aviation – past, present and future!
During camp, children will have the opportunity to become aviation experts by discovering the museum, sitting in the cockpit of a real aircraft, designing and testing their own flying objects and spending time on the museum’s RedBird Flight Simulators. Young flight enthusiasts will explore Edmonton’s rich aviation history and build an understanding of everything needed to take to the skies!
Available Camp Dates
- July 4 – 8, 2022
- July 25 – 29, 2022
- August 15 – 19, 2022
There will be something new and exciting to discover each day. Campers will enjoy learning about aviation history through fun activities like interactive scavenger hunts in the museum, designing their own gliders and parachutes, practicing their flying skills on the flight simulators, and more! Summer Training School will have several new activities mixed with previous PD Day camp favourites like:
- Training School – learning the different positions held by the ground and flight crews through roleplaying and simulations.
- STEM Lab – discovering the creative technology that has helped build the field of aviation, and coming up with ideas for new flying inventions.
- Crash Scene Investigation – finding and piecing together clues to discover what happened in a true historic plane crash.
