Chapter Camping at AirVenture

Returning to AirVenture, chapters have an affordable opportunity to establish a “beachhead” to base their activities. Rather than paying by the day, a group campsite is reserved early and held through the end of the convention. Chapters are able to purchase two to six campsites in advance at a flat rate in order to establish a chapter base of operations. No need to travel to Oshkosh early to stake out your chapter group camping area when participating in the Chapter Camping program.

Chapter Benefits

  • Reserve two to six campsites in a group for your chapter members

  • Complimentary early stake-out by EAA staff and volunteers

  • Occupy your chapter camp campsites as early as July 13

  • Up to seven days of free camping beginning July 13

The following guidelines apply to this special opportunity:

  1. Chapters can secure two to six campsites in advance for up to 16 days of camping through the end of AirVenture. The cost to participate in Chapter Camping is $324 per site. Payment instructions will be provided upon registration. Additional sites may be acquired under the usual camping rules and pricing.

  2. Chapters may reserve up to six campsites using the Chapter Group Camping Registration Tool (link below). Chapters may reserve up to six sites early without confirmation of who will reside in each site, however confirmation is required prior to the close of Chapter Group Camping registration on June 14, 2024. Failure to provide the EAA member name and EAA member number for each site by June 14 will result in forfeiting the reservation. All chapter group camping participants must be a member of the participating EAA chapter and an EAA national member.

  3. EAA staff and volunteers will stake out the chapter campsites beginning on or around July 8, 2024. Chapters may occupy the group camping site as early as July 13 (no sooner).

  4. Due to the campground already having been open for weeks, with many sites already occupied in highly desired areas, chapter campsites will be staked out as close as possible to the desired location listed by the chapter. It can be expected that all participating chapter group camps will be located north of Elm Street and between street number 2 and street number 41 (Deischer Lane). Due to the ever-increasing number of early arrivers after the campground opens on June 28, camp locations east of 28th street (Doolittle Road) fill early. As a result, many chapters can expect to be located west of Doolittle Road, regardless of their desired location. Chapters may suggest a location of preference for their group camp site during the Chapter Group Camping registration process. Group camping stake out order will be based on date of full payment and compliance with program policies. Chapters may request a group campsite location in any “general camping” areas. Refer to Chapter Group Camping Map below.

  5. The Chapter Camping program is for chapter members. All chapter group camping participants must be a member of the participating EAA chapter and an EAA national member.

  6. The offer excludes improved sites (water and electric), sites in Paul’s Woods, 101 Woods, handicap, and generator areas. If a “tent only” site is designated, only chapter group tenting is permitted in these areas. Note — Camp Scholler is always changing site type layout, facilities, roads, and infrastructure.

  7. Chapter camping is only available at Camp Scholler. Aircraft camping is excluded from this offer.

  8. No refunds due to early departure are allowed for these campsites.

  9. Chapters must comply with the policies and guidelines stated in EAA’s current camping guidelines.

  10. The chapter leader or chapter designee will manage all chapter camping credentials.

  11. A chapter designee for each chapter will arrive first and pick up the camping credentials for all chapter campers and be available to distribute them to their respective campers as they arrive. The chapter designee checking in the chapter must be prepared to prove their identity to match to the name on the credential package.
