NAV Canada – Explore Aviation Summer Camp (FREE)

​​Are you a teen who has what it takes to leave ordinary behind? If you do, then NAV CANADA’s Explore Aviation Summer Camp is made for you!

With the success of last year’s inaugural camp, NAV CANADA is announcing the second edition of the Explore Aviation Summer Camp for teens. Last summer, 30 students attended the first edition of the camp and it was an experience they described as “awesome” and “one of the best weeks of my life”.

“For me the interesting part is that you get to see the layers of aviation. We would say ‘there’s the pilot, there’s the person in the tower’ but there’s so many people in between and there’s so many career opportunities. I feel that I can go anywhere,” explained camper Monica Muresan who attended the camp last year.

This summer, 24 young women and 24 young men entering Grade 10 high school (or secondary 4 in Quebec) from across Canada will gather in Cornwall, Ontario. Their mission: one week of learning, fun and friendship with a focus on aviation. This all-expenses-paid camp uses hands-on learning to give you the chance to explore exciting careers that will empower you to soar to success after graduation! ​

​Who can apply: ​Teens going into Grade​​ 10 or secondary 4 in September 2019
​Where: ​NAV CENTRE, Cornwall, ON, with day trips to Montreal and Ottawa
​When: ​Young women: July 14-19, 2019
Young men:​ August 11-16, 2019
​Cost: ​No cost to you! It’s paid for by a NAV CANADA bursary, which includes flight, room and board for the week
​Why: ​To inspire you to explore a career in aviation​

Youth Ambassadors Program with Canada

The Youth Ambassadors Program with Canada is a fully-funded, 3-week exchange program to the United States, including stays in upstate New York and Washington, D.C. The goal is for students (age 15-18) to learn leadership skills and then return home and implement a community service project. We also select two adult mentors to help guide the youth throughout the program.

The Youth Ambassadors Program particularly strives to select students who have limited travel experience to the United States, are new Canadians, are from under-represented populations, or are indigenous Canadians.
