If it’s “brain-stretching” fun you seek this summer and thrive on the science of space adventure, check out the Virginia Space Flight Academy’s Summer Camps. For middle school students, ages 11-15, it’s an opportunity to build and launch model rockets. You also build and program robots to perform specific tasks. Add some drone flying to the mix, and you have the formula for a fun week at summer camp.


This pandemic has created unprecedented challenges for the Virginia Space Flight Academy. With the health of campers and staff as the top priority, the COVID-19 pandemic has forced us to make very difficult decisions. These decisions were not made lightly, but with serious and thoughtful consideration and analysis. To that end, it is with deep sadness that the decision has been made to cancel the 2020 Virginia Space Flight Academy Summer Camp season.

STEM Initiatives on the Eastern Shore

VSFA's residential space camps bring young people from around the country to Wallops Island every summer.

Our Newest initiative is to build off season programs offering a variety of STEM-based programs that will build enthusiasm and inspiration for the next generation of home-grown space scientists, technicians, and engineers, sharing the many career opportunities that are right next door at Wallops Island.
