I just picked up my 13 yr old son. It was his first time away ever and I had to drive 4 hrs to bring him. He roomed with a friend from school. I can't say enough great things about the program and staff! Highly recommended! He learned so much this week and is talking about next year. I felt very comfortable leaving him there. The program is well tuned with no time to be bored!
What an amazing week for my daughter. It proved to be beyond what we had expected. She hasn't stopped talking about her experience and adventures or the friends she's made and is already looking forward to returning next summer.
From the time we left him, to the time we picked him up, until now....he continues to tell us so much of what he has learned, you have truly satisfied his appetite and ignited his passion even more just like the rocket he created and launched. It is an absolute honor to be a part of this enriched program. Thank you all for everything.
Fantastic week last week for my 12 year-old! He was so enthusiastic about everything they did, and the first thing he said was that he wants to go back next year. He loved seeing the hangar where they build the rockets and walking over to the rocket launch pad. Great week!
My daughter has attended many camps in her 15 years but this is the first time she has come home raving. She gave her experience 'a 10 out of 10' which never happens! Thank you for giving her that!!!
I've enjoyed checking in on this site during the week to see what types of activities my son has been doing. It seems like a good mix of field trips, presentations and hands-on activities. I like that evening meals are at various sites that helps the local economy and allows my son to see parts of this area as if he's on vacation. Good value for the money.
I can not say enough about this camp. Both of my boys LOVED it and want to go back next year. I am blown away by all of the things they got to do. I am also thankful for the pictures that were taken and the Facebook updates. I felt like I was there with them and was glad to see their smiling faces! THANK YOU VSFA!!
My 13 year old son just finished his week at VSFA, he loved it! A big thank you to all the supporters, organizers and camp counselors who make this possible.
Great experience for our son and the other campers!
Amazing opportunity for adolescents to learn about rocketry and robotics. Wonderful program.
“When I passed security and entered the NASA facility, I was absolutely astonished at what I saw. So many complex buildings; people working; huge planes and rockets! I would love to work at NASA or NOAA one day.”
“The people here at Space Camp are like me; it’s kinda hard to find people like that outside of Space Camp.”
“This camp was very fun and educational. My favorite part was creating a robot and battling them against the other kids and also making/launching the rockets.”
