A week of high-flying fun

Aviation camp is full, but join the waitlist and get notified if a spot opens up.

Join the Waitlist

Experience an action-packed week! If you love flying and you want to explore a future career in aviation, this is the place for you.

Piloting a plane is a thrill few people get to experience. In addition to logging actual flight time that counts toward your Private Pilot certificate, you’ll learn the science and skills that make flight possible and explore the wide range of opportunities for careers in aviation.

You’ll benefit from daily devotionals and Bible challenge sessions that will strengthen your faith and help you develop a strong biblical worldview. Camp instructors will demonstrate how you can glorify God by using each new skill.


  • Fly a plane on a cross-country flight.
  • Design a sheet metal project.
  • Tour an air traffic control tower.
  • Talk with missionary, military and airline pilots.
  • Learn about aerodynamics, navigation and more.
  • Grow spiritually through devotions and Bible challenges.
  • Learn about drone technology and its uses.
  • Glider launch from Friday morning TBD.
