070913 Elementary School Kids' Aviation Camp (172)

GILFORD — WinnAero, the aviation programs for youth non-profit based at the Laconia Airport, announces its latest innovation in aviation education for kids.
This summer, from July 29-August 2, WinnAero will be offering its popular ACE Academy experience for kids in elementary school grades 3 -5. Modeled after the success of its previous ACE Academies, this elementary school-aged day camp will run mornings only from 8:30 till noon and will feature age-appropriate learning activities for grades 3-5 campers.
Kids will learn to "fly" a computer-based flight simulator, tour the Laconia Airport, build model rockets and airplanes plus get a guided visit of the McAuliffe/Shepherd Discovery Center. Classroom activities and field trips will be conducted by licensed, certified NH school teachers led by WinnAero Program Director, Dan Caron.
Cost of the five morning camp is $200 with some tuition assistance available. Only eight seats remain. If interested in signing up your child for this unique opportunity, contact Dan Caron at (603) 544-3190 or This email address is being protected from spambots.
