Camp SOAR is a highly interactive and hands-on experience for rising 4th – 7th graders. Our camp’s focus will revolve around four tracks of engagement that are interwoven by connecting the dots between the past generation to the challenges of today.

This camp truly reflects the NAEC mission to Honor the Past, Empower the Future by providing an experience your child won’t be able to stop talking about.

Tracks of Engagement


    • STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) introduces campers to the science of aerospace through hands-on activities and team challenges.
    • Occupations in aerospace are exhibited through tours and time with industry professionals
    • Aviation utilizes our unique collection of aircraft to offer history lessons that will inspire your aviation enthusiasts!
    • Reflection on character, choices, and how these traits served our country during World War II through historical artifacts and time with veterans will aid campers in their own future successes.

Whether this is your first time, or you are a returning camper, EVERYONE will find something new to discover and experience!
