Youth Aviation Summer Camp at Jasper County Airport! The airport, working with grant funding secured through Indian Trails Vocational Co-op will host the week-long aviation summer camp starting July 12th. Camp hours will run from 8 am- 11 am Central Monday-Thursday, with Friday the 16th running from 8 am to 4 pm central due to a planned field trip. The camp is free and open to any Indiana 8th-12th grader interested in learning about aviation. Camp attendees will get to learn about and fly drones; learn about and potentially fly an aircraft (aircraft rides/pilots in works); and will tour Purdue’s Aviation Campus as well as an air traffic control tower. Transportation to Lafayette will be through JC Community Services and is funded through the grant. Due to the nature of aviation being affected by weather and other factors, and the professionals needed to make these activities happen, some of the activities above may change.
Any 8th-12th grader interested should have their parents contact the airport at 219.866.2100 or email Info@JasperCountyAirport.com
