If you are between the ages of 13 and 17, or know someone that is that age, and has an interest in the fascinating sport of hot air ballooning, you should consider the BFA Junior Balloonist Summer Camp Program.

These camps is for beginner as well as experienced balloonists. It will teach you the basics as well as help you on your way to acquiring your own pilot certificate or becoming a master crew chief, depending on where your passions take you.

We will teach you about weather, pilot decision making, multiple safety topics, crew training, balloon systems, and much more. There will be opportunities to learn from certified hot air balloon pilots, with hands-on opportunity to work with the balloon equipment. Weather permitting the balloons will tether and fly as part of the camp experience.
