EAA 186 Young Eagles Air Academy

Each year, the EAA Chapter 186 Board of Directors provides funding for young people to attend Air Academy Camp at Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Because of the success of our Young Eagles program, this year we are offering paid camperships for two youths, ages 11 – 15, to attend the Young Eagles Camp and the Basic Air Academy. Each award covers tuition and lodging costs, but does not include airfare or transportation.

If you know of a child who is interested in attending either of these camps, please contact Sande Miller-Long as soon as possible. Slots are filling fast! vicepresident@eaa186.org
