Our friends at EAA Chapter 1083 in Rowan County are hosting the spectacular ASCEND aviation camp (Aviation Summer Camp Exploring New Dimensions), Monday, June 17 through Saturday, June 22, 2019.
The camp is open to youth, ages 13 to 18. It has proven to be a great success for budding aviation enthusiasts, inspiring many young people to pursue aviation as their carrier.

On 4/12- 4/14 a large boy scout camporee was held at SVA. Over 100 scouts participated in a variety of aviation related activities, including young eagle flights, which allowed many the opportunity to earn their aviation merit badge. A number of EAA-chapter 1083 volunteers, some representatives from CAP, as well as SVA volunteers offered their generous service, creating a memorable experience for all involved.
Please enjoy the below clip that wonderfully captures the spirit, resources and beauty of that event.
