Air Show Encampment
Scouts BSA Troops, Venturing Crews, and Explorer Posts are invited to camp as a unit and volunteer for the Crossroads Air Show, one of the biggest events in Indianapolis in 2023!
We expect 1,500 volunteers at Camp Belzer over the weekend of October 27-29, and we have exciting plans to make the experience memorable. We deeply appreciate your help, as we could not host the Air Show without you!
As Volunteers, you will have special access to the Air Show, including transportation to and from the airfield and meals with your unit. We have also arranged an exclusive opportunity just for our encampment participants to meet pilots and crew from the famous U.S. Navy Blue Angels!
