Aviation Summer Camp 2016

Summer Aviation Camp

A record number of 63 students attended camp in 2017, including 16 high school students.  A contingent of 26 volunteers helped throughout the week – including pilots, speakers, teachers, and assistants. A huge Thank-You goes out to our sponsors: The LaPorte Aero Club; Braje, Nelson & Janes; General Insurance Services; LaPorte Aviation Services; and Woolpert. Without their financial assistance, camp fees would be considerably higher. Click the above link for pictures and more information. If you would like to receive 2018 camp information as soon as it’s available, email:
