Explore Flight Through 2004 EAA Air Academy Youth Camps

Into The Air, Junior Birdmen! 

Young people ages 10-18 can explore the fascinating world of flight as the nation’s longest-running aviation camp, the EAA Air Academy, presents its 2004 schedule of programs during summer 2004. The individual camps range from three to nine days in length and take place at the EAA Aviation Center and the beautiful Air Academy Lodge in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
The EAA Air Academy offers four programs; EAA Young Eagles Camp I for 10 and 11-year-olds; EAA Young Eagles Camp II for ages 12-13; EAA Basic Air Academy for ages 14-15; and Advanced Air Academy for ages 16-18.

“Since 1984, the EAA Air Academy has hosted thousands of young people from around the world, launching them on their own voyages of self-discovery and aviation adventure,” said Chuck Larsen, EAA’s executive director of residence education. “Each participant will learn that the sky is not the limit—it’s a beginning for aviation fun, adventure, friendship and knowledge.”

The EAA Air Academy programs, which are accredited by the American Camping Association (ACA), are staffed with instructors with more than 180 years of combined experience at the Air Academy and more than 225 combined years of teaching and counseling background. The Air Academy’s mission is to provide a fun aviation learning experience and develop bonds with other young aviation enthusiasts.

This year’s EAA Air Academy programs include:

EAA Young Eagles Camp I (June 12-16)
EAA Young Eagles Camp II (June 19-23 or June 25-29)

Designed as an introduction to the wonderful world of aviation, these new programs will use small group activities and close counselor relationships to present the basics of flight in a “science camp” format that is a unique combination of fun and discovery.

EAA Basic Air Academy (July 5-11 or July 12-18)

Basic Air Academy is the next exciting step through the world of aviation. Each “hands-on” activity is developed for the intermediate 14- and 15-year-old during classroom and media presentations, specialized laboratory activities and aviation-related demonstrations.

EAA Advanced Air Academy (July 20-29 or July 31-August 9)

EAA Advanced Air Academy provides an atmosphere for mature students to become totally immersed in the world of flight. Ground instruction and introductory recreation flight experiences highlight this meaningful, action-packed camp. It combines “in-the-air” and “on-the-ground” activities.
