Summer Camps

Summer camps at the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum are always an exciting adventure into the world of aviation. Our “campground” is not only the Museum facility but we also visit the entire John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport including the air traffic control tower. In addition to aviation related crafts and games, the highlight of the week is definitely a flight in the Museum's vintage Douglas Dakota.

All Summer Camps Include:

  • daily hot lunch and nutritious snacks
  • camp t-shirt
  • model building
  • flight simulator time
  • visit to the air traffic control tower
  • visit to the airport fire department
  • visit to airport tenants
  • pop bottle rocket contest
  • ejection seat challenge
  • a 20 minute flight in the Museum's Douglas Dakota
