Aerospace Adventures For Students!
Students, grades 1-12, are invited
to join the aerospace adventure summer camps in June, July and
August at the Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum in McMinnville,
OR. Featured aviation- or space-themed camps include: Aileron
Adventure, Aviation in Motion, Aviation Academy Camp, Blast-Off Day
Camp, Space X-plorers and Aerospace Challenge.
Museum personnel tell ANN students will learn about the science
and history of flight while building gliders, airplanes, rockets
and weather stations among the museum’s collection of more
than 150 historic aircraft, spacecraft and exhibits. They will also
be able to navigate flights and launch satellites on various museum
simulators, as well as watch a showing of either Fighter Pilot:
Operation Red Flag, Magnificent Desolation or Space Station 3D at
the Evergreen IMAX® 3D Theater. The line up of summer camps
also includes two overnight camps in conjunction with
Seattle’s Museum of Flight.
Students will spend the first part of the camp at the Evergreen
Museum, and then will travel to the Seattle Museum of Flight for
the second part of the camp.
Each camp is age-group specific, with camp prices ranging from
$47 to $399 depending on the camp. Special prices are available for
museum members and for campers that sign up together.
