July 24, 2021 – The wait is over! EAA Camp Scholler residents again have the opportunity to start their AirVenture day with a hot, hearty breakfast right inside the campground. In the northeast corner of the campground resides a pavilion where each morning a different EAA chapter hosts a traditional pancake breakfast. The breakfast events are a fundraiser for each chapter, and meals are offered to all campground residents, meaning all are welcome! Beginning each morning at 7 a.m. and running until around 11 a.m., campers can enjoy a stack of pancakes, scrambled eggs, sausages, coffee, and orange drink on their way into convention.
Chapters prove to be a great place to form close friendships with aviation-minded people in local communities, and many EAA chapter members from around the country camp together at AirVenture, creating a base camp for their chapter. When back at home, chapter members often host pancake breakfasts at their own airports, and many times chapters incorporate a Young Eagles rally at the same event. To say chapters have a corner on the market when organizing these types of breakfast events is an understatement, as these groups know what they’re doing.
“This year, we have 10 chapters, hosting eight days of pancake breakfasts, as we have a group of four chapters camping and cooking together from Utah. Many times local EAA chapters share member resources throughout the year, and plan their events with respect to one another,” said John Egan, EAA staff senior manager for chapters and Young Eagles.
Chapters have been hosting pancake breakfasts at the campground pavilion since 2018, and this marks the first year for an EAA Warbirds Squadron hosting a breakfast.

EAA chapters are local groups of aviation enthusiasts with a wide range of interests, including aircraft building, engaging youth, aviation safety, vintage aircraft, ultralights, warbirds, aerobatic flight, and everything in between. In addition to monthly meetings, local chapters allow people to share their interests with thousands of other members in a variety of aviation, educational, and social activities. Each chapter has its own personality that is reflected in its members and local culture, but all chapters have one thing in common: a passion for aviation.
Be sure to stop by the EAA Camp Scholler Chapters Pavilion on your way to convention, and enjoy a hot meal with friends. Enjoy EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2021!
