RE: ACE Academy’s Summer Camps Cancelled for 2020
June 7, 2020.
It is with our deepest regrets that due to Coronavirus (COVID-19), we will have to cancel all Jim Shaw ACE Academy camps for the 2020 season. Given the number of unknown variables still present, the risks of bringing our community together, in-person, for a traditional camp are far too great. This difficult decision was reached after our board members considered many options to determine if camps could be held with proper social distancing, cleaning protocols, and other safety measures. “The health and safety of campers and staff is the number one priority,” said Jim Shaw, the Camp’s Founder.
Qualifying refunds that were paid within the last 90 days have already been processed. For those that paid over 90 days ago, we will be sending you checks via mail within the next few days.
As you are aware, our camp is a very unique experience for local students. For over 10 years we have curated the best-in-class aviation program and plan on continuing that mission. We appreciate your continued support and interest in our program. Stay tuned because every year our camp evolves, and next year’s camp will be bigger and better than ever.
Founder, Jim Shaw Ace Academy
Join Mr. Shaw in introducing the aviation industry and aviation opportunities to our area middle school and high school age students.
Middle and high school students will have the opportunity to learn more about aviation and aviation-related job opportunities at Aviation Career Education (ACE) academies that will be held across North Carolina this summer. Students will learn about the theory of flight, aviation’s history, aircraft maintenance and new technologies. Attendees will study real world aviation applications, aviation principles such as thrust and vectoring, and aircraft construction. They also will have the opportunity to fly radio-controlled aircraft and work on aircraft model design projects, as well as take field trips to aviation industry businesses and have the opportunity to fly in an airplane.
