High-flying adventure returns as the Alberta Aviation Museum announces the return of our PD Day Camp Program.

Campers aged 6-11 are invited to camps taking place on select Edmonton Public (and Catholic) School Board PD Days throughout the School Year  from 9:00am – 4:00pm.  Camps explore Edmonton’s rich aviation history while learning what future aviators need to know to take to the sky!

Children will have the opportunity to explore the museum, sit in the cockpit of one of our aircraft, and flex their creative muscles designing and testing flying objects, all while using their creativity and imagination to explore the world of aviation. All camps include time on the museum’s RedBird Flight Simulators.
