Aviation Camp

Aviation Camp

Posted: Updated:

Firefighters, ballerinas --- and pilots.

These are just a handful of childhood career dreams --- and a new kid camp is helping those dreams take flight.

The Dakota Territory Air Museum has put together an educational Aviation course for young students.

The first Saturday of the month for the next 6 months --- third through sixth graders will be out at the air museum learning about the science, vocabulary, and general knowledge of flying airplanes.

(Michelle Saari and Melessa Bosch, Education and Event Coordinators) "One of our intents here at the Dakota Territory Air Museum was really to inspire kids to get involved in aviation. Sometimes if you don't have that connection, either militarily or general aviation, you might not always think of this as a career opportunity. And there are so many good choices in aviation to make for the kids. So we wanted to be that hole in the fence for any kid that's really inspired, or that's looking to the sky, or they want to get in an aircraft, or they want to learn how to do it, that it's attainable for them."

If you're interested in getting your kids involved, contact the Dakota Territory Air Museum.
