The OU Sooner Flight Academy, an aviation education program provided by the University of Oklahoma Department of Aviation, has begun registration for its five-day, hands-on youth summer flight camps.
Children ages six through 18 are eligible to attend and camps are divided into ten age groups with activities and materials that are developmentally appropriate. OU’s Academy Navigators help campers explore and experiment as they engage in hands-on activities that demonstrate the science, technology, engineering, and math of the exciting world of flight.
Scholarships/financial assistance for the OU Sooner Flight Academy summer flight camps are available, with applications due May 1. The scholarships are funded by a grant through the Oklahoma Aeronautics Commission and others. More details, including application information, are available at https://flightcamp.ou.edu/en/faq/scholarships/.
The OU Sooner Flight Academy has been offering science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) aviation and aerospace programs to the youth of Oklahoma for 27 years. In addition to the annual summer camp programs, it also provides engaging, custom-tailored field trip opportunities and classroom or school-wide visits for students in kindergarten through 12th grade.
