Yesterday, students took a field a trip to Reagan National Airport to tour the air traffic control tower.  The trip was coordinated to reinforce the students’ lessons on  the career field of air traffic control and their job responsibilities.

Today, students will conclude the aviation track with a trip to an air field in Virginia.  Students will be instructed by pilots and have an opportunity to ride in an airplane.

The architecture track will begin August 8, and conclude on Saturday.

The Camp will conclude on Saturday with group presentations and a closing ceremony to recognize the students’ efforts and accomplishments.

The Camp will also be featured on 89.3FM, WPFW on Community Watch and Comment at 9AM tomorrow, August 7.
