New Summer Camp Opens at the New England Air Museum
Windsor Locks, CT – The New England Air Museum announces its new youth summer camp, Aerospace Academy! Children ages 9-12 will have fun with drones, robots, and experience flight in our Redbird flight simulator. The camp is licensed, and run by the museum’s Director of Education, Amanda Goodheart Parks, Ph.D. Activities are designed for fun and to spark an interest in the exciting world of aviation and aerospace.
Campers will participate in a range of activities including full-day field trips to Central Connecticut State University to operate submersibles in their new Tech Center pool, and to Brainard Airport for behind-the-scenes tours.
“We are thrilled to provide this opportunity to children to have hands-on play with drones, robots, and time in our flight simulators,” said President and CEO Stephanie Abrams. “Our hope is to spark excitement about the thrill of flight.”
Scholarships are available and a 25% discount is offered to families who sign up more than one child.
Camp sessions are weekly and run throughout July and August. For more information, please visit https://neam.org/pages/summer-camp or contact our camp team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
