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.

ADVANCED CAMP 2019

Taking Lego Robotics to the Next Step with Arduino Coding

For Advanced Camp in 2019, campers will build their robots using gears, circuits and metal parts with coding using Arduino. Their efforts will culminate in a challenge to design, build and program a robot to carry and set a model rocket for launch.

Coming in 2019

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

Coming in 2019 will be our newest initiative to build off-season programs for students from the Virginia/Maryland/Delaware area! Families from these local communities have limited opportunities to attend camp.

Our goal is to change that by 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.
