It's set to take place next Monday and Tuesday campus. Organizers say the aim of the camp is to show teenage girls the numerous careers that are in both fields.

" It will create and promote the opportunities to learn about aeronautics and aerospace, and also to help them figure out their potential careers" Organizer of the camp Thy Bui says.

Those who attend will be able to fly planes in a simulator, make bottle rockets, and participate in a rocket launch with those rockets.

Attendees will also have a chance to tour the following local companies:

  • 148th Fighter Wing
  • An airport control tower
  • Cirrus Aircraft
  • Lake Superior Helicopters
  • Monaco Air

Bui says the hope is to have at least 20 girls sign up this year, which would be more than the 11 that attended last year. Cost for the camp is $50.

Check-in time is from 8 - 8:30 a.m. next Monday, June 25 and pick-up time is at 4:30 p.m. Overnight lodging is provided in the cost of the camp, but is not required. Click here to register.
