ECAHF Summer Camp 2018

April 10th, 2018


Havelock, NC – The Eastern Carolina Aviation Heritage Foundation in partnership with the City of Havelock, will be offering a week-long, non-residential summer day camp for elementary school students (rising 4th, 5th and 6th graders) at the Havelock Tourist & Event Center on July 24th through 28th, 2017. The camp will be led by elementary school teachers from Craven and Carteret Counties with support from engineering faculty from NC State University and staff from Fleet Readiness Center East aboard MCAS Cherry Point.

The camp will provide students a fun and positive glimpse into various fields of engineering using hands-on, creative investigations and real-world building activities. Throughout the week, students will be divided into design teams led by local teachers. In their teams, students will be given the challenge to individually design and build various devices related to aviation and will learn engineering fundamentals by exploring various experiments.
On the final day of camp, students will demonstrate their work in a public forum that incorporates many of the concepts from the camp’s weekly activities.

Families and the community are invited to attend this final competition on Friday morning. The camp is from 8:30am – 12:00noon Monday through Friday and a snack is provided. No lunch is provided. Cost for the camp is $125 per student. Scholarships may be available for students with demonstrated financial need. Please contact us if you are interested in sponsoring a student.
