Returning Campers

Returning campers are encouraged and welcomed at Space Flight Adventure Camp. We invite them to help first time campers, and share the knowledge they gained during previous sessions. Often returning campers bring a friend to share the experience and memories of camp.

Since our field trips remain the same each year, returning campers participate in many of the same experiences that they enjoyed as first time campers.


Thanks to generous support from local companies, deserving students can apply for financial assistance with camp tuition. Completed applications must be received no later than one month before the selected session begins, and must be accompanied by a $100.00 deposit.

If scholarship funds are not available, Academy staff can work with families to seek assistance from their own communities.
