Jaars Center

As a precautionary measure due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have cancelled this year’s Brigade Air Camp. However, we are already planning ahead for 2021! We will update this page as more details are available.

Brigade Air Camp

Experience missionary aviation over your summer break!

JAARS partners with Brigade Air to offer a Christian youth mentoring curriculum and mission aviation camp program with the goal of encouraging young people to seriously consider God’s calling on their lives to serve in missionary aviation. Learn more below, or browse our FAQs.

“Brigade Air solidified and changed the direction I was taking. Before that I wasn’t really sure if mission aviation was what I wanted to do.”

– Annie Kate, pilot
