Space Flight Adventure Camp offers week-long, residential summer camps for students interested in learning about the science and engineering of rockets and space flight.

Instructors are carefully selected for their successful experience in working with young learners and for their passion for space science.

Six residential camps will be held June 24th through August 3rd for ages 11 to 15.

You will be training along side fellow space explorers at an operational NASA space facility!  You will build and launch your own model rockets. In addition, you will explore the world of robotics using the LEGO(c) MindStorms system and an opportunity to fly drones.

That's not all! You will engineer a simulated rocket launch in an actual NASA mission control room while seated behind a computer console during the launch. You will also visit many of the departments at NASA Wallops Flight Facility to learn what their role is in launching rockets into space. In addition, you will tour NOAA Weather Command and Data Acquisition Center, NASA and Virginia Commercial Space Flight launch facilities.
