Eagles Camp Activities

All camps fly kites, build and launch rockets, pre-flight aircraft and much more. The physics of flight is always part of Sooner Flight Academy’s lessons and activities. Bernoulli’s Principle and Newton’s Laws of Motion are introduced in every age level with corresponding experiences. Using fun, hands-on experiments and projects, we also explore the individual theme of each camp that makes it distinct from each age group. Exploring the world of aviation is a given at our Max Westheimer Airport location. Activities are matched to the age level of the camp. On-site camps feature flights matched to each age group’s ability level. Specific daily schedules for each camp will be sent to registered campers one week before the start of camp.
