Are you ready for the best event the Blackhawk Area Council has to offer!  Are you ready for the event that only comes around every 5 years!
Then get ready for Air Camp 2018!
Air Camp is a very special jamboree style event held by the Blackhawk Area Council and hosted at the Rockford Airport in Rockford, IL.  This event will be held September 28 - 30.  There will be special activities all over the property of the Rockford Airport from 9 AM to 5 PM on Saturday.  (see a list of activities below)  There will also be special entertainment for the campfire that evening.  It is a fun filled day with lots to do and see.
I will be your leader in charge of this outing.  If you would like to attend this very special event, please complete the attached permission slip and submit it to me on, or preferably before, 9/18.
One of the special activities for the Boy Scouts is to take a short flight with the Young Eagles program!  This activity requires advanced on-line registration and an original completed Young Eagles waiver by the scout's parents that has to be submitted by the scout to the pilot on the day of the flight.  If you are interested in this special activity, please see the attached info sheet and complete the on-line registration found on the Air Camp web-site.  (use link below)  Please let me know that you signed up for this activity so I can keep track of who is signed up for the flights.
