Summer Camps

2023 Summer Flight School

Summer will be a blast!  The Alberta Aviation Museum is excited to bring on a series on week-long summer camp at everyone’s favourite historic aircraft hangar.

Join us for a full-week high-flying adventures!

The Alberta Aviation Museum’s Summer Flight School mixes the best of our favourite History Explorers, Training School, Science of Flight, and Crash Scene Investigation camps! Campers will explore the history of Edmonton’s Blatchford Field through interactive activities and taking the pilot’s seat in a different historic aircraft daily. Learn about the science of flight as we build and test a variety of flying crafts. Youth will have a chance to solve some historic mysteries too!

Campers will start the week travelling through time to uncover stories of Alberta’s aviation history through cooperative scavenger hunts and games. We’ll then spend a few days in historic flight school learning different flight crew roles and the flight controls. Campers will become Crash Scene Investigators, solving mysteries based on historic events in an aircraft escape room and honing their investigative skills. Youth will finish the week testing their aviation skills and knowledge to earn their wings.

Each day campers will have the opportunity to go in a different aircraft as well as a trip to the playground and a chance to test out our flight simulators.
