Cleared For Takeoff!
A Summer Camp Like No Other
The University of North Dakota’s International Aerospace Camp is a full week of aviation adventure! This “college seminar” is similar to attending a week of actual college. Additionally, what makes this seminar unique is the amount of flight training each student receives. We are very interested in students who truly want to experience collegiate aviation.
Your counselors, flight instructors and professors are leaders in aerospace education. You’ll start with the basics of flying, experience new and exciting technology and explore career opportunities in flight, air traffic control, aviation management, and unmanned aircraft systems (UAS).
