    C.R. Smith Museum Makes Happy Campers With the Eagle Aviation Camp This June

    FORT WORTH, Texas, March 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- There are lots of summer activities for children in North Texas, but only one Eagle Aviation Camp. The American Airlines C.R. Smith Museum offers not only a one-week program that will explore and experiment with the driving force of flight – thrust – it also takes the campers behind the scenes at one of the world's largest airlines.

    Children taking part in the 2012 Eagle Aviation Camp will tour seldom-seen aviation facilities as well as take part in a variety of fun, educational activities to demonstrate the physics of propulsion. Campers will propel objects off the ground and through the air.

    The Eagle Aviation Camp launches in June for students in grade 5 through 9:

    June 11-15 – for students entering grades 5, 6 and 7

    June 18-22 – for students entering grades 6, 7 and 8

    June 25-29 – for students entering grades 7, 8 and 9

    A week at the Eagle Aviation Camp is priced at $250 per student for C.R. Smith Museum member families and $300 for non-members. However, those who register by April 1 will save $50 with an Early Bird Discount. Register by May 1 to qualify for a $25 Advance Discount.
