Summer Camp Scholarship Fund

Participants in the Aviation Museum’s 2023 ‘Flights of Discovery’ Summer Camp program enjoy a close encounter with an Amazon Prime Air 767-300 taking off from Manchester-Boston Regional Airport.

The Aviation Museum’s ‘Flights of Discovery’ summer camp program welcomes young people ages 10-17.

For students whose families are unable to afford full tuition, financial aid is available via our Summer Camp Scholarship Fund.

Qualifying students may receive scholarships covering up to 75 percent of the camp’s tuition, which is $1,100 for two weeks.

The Scholarship Fund is made possible by generous donors eager to help aviation-minded young people attend our life-changing summer camp.

You can help! Donate online using the line below. Your gift will help provide financial aid to kids at a crucial and formative time in their lives. You’ll make it possible for them to attend our summer camp, where they can experience such aviation-related wonders as pizza delivered by helicopter. (Take that, Amazon drones!)

In 2023, the Summer Camp Scholarship Fund awarded $11,400 to children of families who otherwise would not have been able to afford the full camp tuition.

For a specific example of how the camp changed one young person’s life, consider Rokhan’s Story.

In 2024, with the camp expanding from four weeks to six, and enrollment expected to rise from 25 to 60 participants, the need for financial aid will increase as well. So your support is more important than ever. Here’s how to help.

Transaction fees for online donations: Please note that our online payment processor adds a fee of 3 to 4.5 percent to your total, which it will ask you to cover. If you can do that, then the Aviation Museum will receive the full amount you intended. Thank you!

Avoid extra charges: Also, during the checkout process, the processor will automatically suggest a “tip” for as much as 15 percent on top of the amount you’re donating. To avoid this fee, just reset the tip to 0 and proceed with the transaction.
