About 9 years ago now, I helped my father start an aviation camp for kids. We had a tremendous amount of support from the local Central Florida flying community and even a big hand from the Arnold Air Society from the Air Force ROTC detachment at the University of Central Florida. It was a two day camp of learning about aviation that culminated with plane rides for all of the kids. A successful 1st year had many people asking us to do it again.
We’ve now had 8 great annual camps since then and the 9th is coming up soon(Oct 20-21, 2012). If you are in the Central Florida area and are looking for an awesome activity for your kids, check out the camp’s website. More info can be found by downloading the registration packet on the site or visiting the camp’s facebook page.
