The AMC Museum’s educational summer camp is for children interested in aeronautics and the U.S. Air Force. They will learn the history and science of flight, learn to fly in a simulator, and pre-flight an actual aircraft. They’ll also see what it’s like in a working air traffic control tower on base, get a weather briefing, and talk to a pilot and loadmaster. New this year—a digital scavenger hunt!

A unique feature of this summer camp is the option of a flight in a Dover AFB aero club plane around the base flight pattern for only $25.

Half-day classes are from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. for ages 9 to 11 and 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. for ages 12 to 15. Dover AFB Aero Club flights will be on Thursdays, weather permitting. Flights will take place on Fridays if necessary due to bad weather.

Cost is $100 for a week of half-day classes and $25 for the optional flight. Enrollment is on a first-come, first-serve basis. Classes will be cancelled if a minimum number of students have not registered. A full refund will be given if class is cancelled and the student cannot attend another. A refund will be given if flights must be cancelled for weather or other events beyond the AMC Museum’s control. If you must cancel we must receive 72 hours notice for a refund.
