Chincoteague Chamber of Commerce on Chincoteague Island, Virginia

The Chincoteague Chamber of Commerce was founded in 1954, when a group of businessmen in the town got together and decided to establish the much needed organization. In the first few months of its operation, one of the largest projects undertaken was the printing of the Chincoteague Beacon, a local newspaper which is still in circulation today (but not printed by the Chamber).

The Chamber has grown from 66 members in 1954 to 272 members in 2007. We are a non-profit, volunteer membership organization serving as the leading spokesman and representative for the businesses on Chincoteague Island. We unite businesses, improving both business and economic development on the island. We play a vital role in Town issues and state legislature that could adversely or positively impact our businesses and our livelihood.

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.
