Aviation Camp of the Carolinas is a single-day, life-altering camp conducted on airport property. The camp totally immerses students in all things aviation and conducted at local airports to learn about the bounty of careers in the aviation profession in addition to flying. We, along with the aviation professionals they will meet during the camp, teach the hidden aspects of aviation that the traveling public does not know. Campers are connected with mentors (aviation specialists) who love giving accurate guidance to young people. Through those specialists, students may sign up for later flights, join the Civil Air Patrol, or head back to school emboldened with a STEM foundation they can use.
By attending our camp, students are instilled with self-confidence, dedication to goal achievement, STEM support, and leadership qualities, using aviation as the catalyst for instruction. It gives them an opportunity to experience a range of profession that they otherwise may not have been introduced to before. Students who go through the camp have also reported new-found or increased motivation toward studies and resolving issues of fear. Students leave Aviation Camp of the Carolinas energized, with an attitude of wanting to learn, and with the knowledge that good grades and hard work will lead them to success.
