Chapter 1541 is supporting the Parks and Recreation Department of the City of Lincoln in conducting a specialty Aviation Summer Camp during the last week of June. Dan and Linda Masys are organizing a curriculum to provide a group of ten young people aged 7 to 12 daily sessions conducted between 1 pm and 4 pm Monday-Friday, June 24 -June 28. The city is handling the administrative
organization and the transportation for the group, while our chapter will provide aviation-related activities for each of the five days.
A small group of volunteers from the chapter will be on hand each day at our chapter hangar, where the event will be held, to help provide the campers with the best possible experience.
Among the planned activities will be an airport tour, educational hands-on sessions on fixed-wing airplanes, gyroplanes, and balloons, and presentations about aviation careers and recreational opportunities. The week will culminate in Young Eagle flights for those participating youth who provide the required parental permissions. The camp tuition is $72.50 per child and registration is accomplished online at a City of Lincoln website.
