FUN CAMP 2014...

Our 2013 Aviation Fun Camp was a great success, having 12 kids graduating.
We made trips to Ocracoke with beach lunch and swimming, to the Wright Brother Museum at First Flight, and even to Virginia to visit the Aviation Museum in Virginia Beach, a very interesting must-to-see place.
Besides, we had the traditional Flour Bombing Contest in New Bern with 3 winners, and a lot of fun for the whole week.
See you all again in 2014. Our Camp will be held between
June 16th-20th, 2014.
