FEFY Offers Vermont Soaring Opportunity for Teens

Trio of Youth Soaring Camp Scholarships Return for 2023

Flight Experience For Youth (FEFY), a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization, announced a trio of Youth Soaring Camp scholarships for the summer of 2023.

The group is dedicated to "creating growth opportunities for young people through aviation experiences and education", leveraging the thrill of flight to build hands-on experience in the world around them. The camp is a week-long, immersive experience that includes 10 instructional flights, ground school, meals, supervised overnight camping on the airfield, and daily activities. The scholarships cover the full cost of tuition for students 13-18.

“The Sugarbush Soaring Association, located at the Warren-Sugarbush Airport in Warren, Vermont, has been providing unforgettable flight training experiences for over two decades and this summer, three lucky teens will have the chance to attend the Sugarbush Soaring Overnight Youth Soaring Camp (YSC) thanks to FEFY's scholarships”, said Jen Stamp, President of FEFY.

Last year’s recipient of the Female, Transgender and Non-Binary scholarship, Raphaella Sulley, said “My experience at soaring camp was like nothing I have ever partaken in. It was a great environment to learn and grow in. The staff at Sugarbush Soaring are such positive people who all have the love for aviation. I had such a good time at camp and can't wait for what the future holds for me in aviation!”

“I was one of the recipients of a camp scholarship," said Dane Liebermann, a former camper. "For me, the camp was a huge success, as I came out of it with my first solo flight under my belt. The experience of living at the airport and flying consistently really helped me to focus and allowed me to progress. I loved the balance of freedom and structure, and I was able to build strong bonds with both the instructors and my fellow campers.”

Interested youth 13-18, in the Vermont area are invited to apply for any of the scholarships available at the site below. Sugarbush Soaring reopens Saturday, May 20th, 2023.
