MGSC Eastman Campus to Host Sky Camp


Middle Georgia State College's aviation campus in Eastman is once again hosting Sky Camp for students ages 10-14. This year's Sky Camp will take place from Tuesday, June 25, through Thursday, June 27, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day.

Sky Camp's purpose is to interest kids in aviation careers. Participating students will have opportunities to explore weather, history and physics of flight; learn aircraft maintenance; build and launch rockets and gliders; use flight simulators; tour an air traffic control tower; fly in an aircraft and launch a space balloon.

The cost is $100 per student, which includes all lunches. Michael G. Newton, the campus's chief helicopter pilot who is directing the camp, said a Middle Georgia State organization of helicopter students called Rotorheads raised money to sponsor about 10 kids from the Eastman community to attend the camp.

For registration information, contact Andrea Yawn at apyawn@mgc.edu or (478) 374-6700 or Christy Faulk at cfaulk@mgc.edu or (478) 374-4703.
