Planning to check out Dayton while your kid is at camp?
WELL, THERE’S LOTS TO DO
Air Camp is located in Dayton, Ohio, the birthplace of aviation. During the Overnight Middle School program, students stay in a residence hall at the University of Dayton. For off-campus activities, they are transported by charter bus to various locations throughout the Dayton region.
Dayton, Ohio is the birthplace of aviation and a center of invention. Here, the Wright Brothers invented and perfected manned, powered, controlled, heavier-than-air flight, and experimented with early airplanes at Huffman Prairie. Today, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base is a hub of innovation for aviation and aeronautics as the home of the Air Force Research Laboratory, the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center, the Air Force Institute of Technology, the Air Force Material Command Headquarters, and the National Museum of the United States Air Force.
