There is a big difference between six-year-old campers and seven-year-old campers, so we offer separate Penguins camps for each age group.
Penguins are flightless birds, and as such, camps for our youngest campers do not involve airplane flights at the end of camp.
Registration for our 2020 Summer Camp dates opens on March 1. Only one session of the Penguins 1 and Penguins 2 camps will be offered each summer. The cost to attend a Penguins camp is $475 per camper.
Campers spend every day having fun and learning new things about the world around them. The airport provides opportunities to explore math, science and technology from a very different perspective.
Penguins 1 is a five-day camp for children who are six years old on June 1.
The theme for this five-day camp is learning about bugs that fly and how they compare to airplanes. Campers will also enjoy rockets, kites and, of course, OU’s fleet of training aircraft to climb in and explore.
Penguins 2 is a five-day camp for children who are seven years old on June 1.
The camp theme for Penguins 2 is about how birds fly and how they compare to airplanes.
Campers will also enjoy rockets, kites and, of course, OU’s fleet of training aircraft to climb in and explore.
To register your child for a Sooner Flight Academy Summer Camp, you must first create a Registration Information account. This account will not only allow you to register your child for Sooner Flight Academy events, it will also let you track your child’s history of engagement with Sooner Flight Academy.
To create a Registration Information account, just click the registration link for the camp you want your child to attend. Here, you will be prompted to enter a username and password for your account. If you have previously registered a child for a Sooner Flight Academy camp, your current username and password will still work. If this is your first time registering a child for one of our camps, just click the link to create a new login to get started.
Once you have created an account, you can then click the Add a Child link to add a child to your Registration Information account. A child must be added to your account before they can be registered for a camp.
Once your child has been added to your account, you can register him or her for any available Sooner Flight Academy camp by clicking the Registration link in the left-hand menu.

Registration for all camps opens on March 1 and requires a non-refundable application fee of $25. Registration remains open until the Monday morning of each camp session.
There are two payment options:
• Option One – Pay your camp balance in full when you register for a camp.
• Option Two – Apply for a partial scholarship when you register for a camp.
If you apply for a partial scholarship, you will only pay the non-refundable application fee at the time of registration. The remaining balance will be added to your account after the scholarships have been awarded. Your balance must be paid no later than May 15.
Due to current circumstances related to Covid-19 in Oklahoma and the nation, the partial scholarship application deadline has been extended to May 1. Partial scholarship awards will be announced by email on May 8. The deadline for acceptance and payment remains May 15. Please check the Scholarship FAQ section of our FAQ page for more information about applying for scholarships.
You can also sign up for our Extended Day Curriculum option during summer camp registration. For an extra $50, Extended Day Curriculum allows you to drop off your camper each morning as early as 7:30 a.m. and pick up your camper as late as 5 p.m. Extended Day curriculum is not available on the Friday afternoon of summer camp. Your camper must be picked up by 3:30 p.m. on Friday (our graduation ceremony starts at 2:45 p.m.).
