2022 CAMP DATES

Space Adventure Camp

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Space Adventure Camps (Weeks 1 – 4)

Ages 11-15

Dates: Week 1: June 26 – July 1; Week 2: July 3 – 8; Week 3: July 10 – 15; Week 4: July 17 – 22

Price: $1099

Includes all meals (breakfast, lunch, snacks, and dinner), housing at the Chincoteague Bay Field Station, extra-curricular and social activities, daily evening events, day trips to nearby aerospace facilities, or recreational sites, course equipment, and supplies.

This 6 day/5 night co-ed Space Adventure Camp combines fun with the hands-on experience of building and launching model rockets, coding and building robots, and flying drones (sUAS). Each day campers will explore topics through collaborative activities and hands-on projects designed to develop their strengths and build new skills. Campers will also have a chance to meet industry experts and go behind the scenes at operational aerospace facilities. Campers will get a chance to build and launch several rockets, including one from a model rocket kit and a custom-built rocket. The coding and robotics program utilizes Lego Mindstorms EV3 kits to engage and challenge students of all skill levels. Each camper will design, build, and program their robots and incorporate teamwork and competitive challenges to task their robots with specific actions. Campers will participate in a drone challenge to learn drone technology in a real-life scenario that involves teamwork. They will also learn a basic overview of the FAA and the rules to fly in the United States. 

Advanced Camp

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Advanced Camps (Week 5 and 6 only)

Ages 12-16 

Please note: Advanced Camp now features one week of Advanced Rocketry and one week of Advanced Coding & Robotics. Advanced Camps are for returning campers and those with experience in rocketry or robotics.

Advanced Rocketry Camp Week 5 only: July 24 – 29
Price: $1199

Includes all meals (breakfast, lunch, snacks, and dinner), housing at the Chincoteague Bay Field Station, extra-curricular and social activities, daily evening events, day trips to nearby aerospace facilities, or recreational sites, course equipment, and supplies.

Students will face more complex aeronautical engineering design challenges during this 6 day/5 night co-ed Advanced Rocketry Camp. Students will use CAD design and 3D printers to design and fabricate rocket parts in this rocketry-focused camp. Our budding rocket scientist will utilize OpenRocket, a model rocket simulator, to design and simulate rocket performance before building and flight. They will also compare the simulation to actual performance using Pocket Lab, a multi-sensor payload, to capture flight data, including motion, altitude, and more. Advanced Rocketry campers will also have the chance to meet industry experts, go behind the scenes at operational aerospace facilities, and learn how their rocketry interest can become a future career path. Advanced Rocketry students must have previous knowledge and experience with rocketry or have previously attended Space Adventure Camp.

Advanced Coding & Robotics Camp Week 6 only: July 31 – August 5
Price: $1199

Includes all meals (breakfast, lunch, snacks, and dinner), housing at the Chincoteague Bay Field Station, extra-curricular and social activities, daily evening events, day trips to nearby aerospace facilities or recreational sites, course equipment, and supplies.

During this 6 day/5 night co-ed Advanced Coding & Robotics Camp, students will face more complex robotics engineering design challenges and advanced programming operations. Campers who select robotics will utilize Arduino, the brains behind thousands of everyday objects and complex scientific instruments, to build a robot using gears, circuits, and metal structural components. Advanced Robotics campers will also have a chance to meet industry experts, go behind the scenes at operational aerospace facilities, and learn how their excitement for coding and robotics can ignite their future and career path. Advanced Coding & Robotics students must have previous knowledge and experience with coding and robotics or have previously attended Space Adventure Camp.

2022 APPROACH TO COVID-19 PROTOCOLS & REQUIREMENTS

Keeping campers, staff, and our community safe remains our top priority. With our conservative COVID-19 health and safety protocols in place in 2021, we were able to run our summer camp without a single case of COVID-19.

We remain optimistic that Summer 2022 will return to some normalcy; however, please note that we will continue to implement a conservative approach to COVID-19 safety. We will make adjustments to COVID-19 based on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommendations, state regulations, and American Camp Association and Association of Camp Nursing guidance.

We will require you and your family to help keep our camp community safe from outbreaks by adhering to similar protocols and procedures outlined in the 2021 COVID-19 Protocols & Requirements. Please note that the 2021 protocols serve as an EXAMPLE ONLY and are NOT referring to the new 2022 COVID-19 Protocols & Requirements.

With guidance changing constantly, we plan to update our 2022 COVID-19 Protocols & Requirements as we approach Summer 2022.

New additions and changes to the protocols and requirements for participation in 2022 summer camps may include but are not limited to the following:

  • Campers may be required to be FULLY immunized, including the COVID-19 vaccine, before camp begins. Campers with medical exceptions will be allowed at camp with approved documentation from a health care provider.
  • Pre-arrival PCR COVID-19 tests may be required.
  • Vaccination cards must be uploaded to the Jumbula registration site before arrival at camp.
  • Required universal masking in public indoor spaces.

Thank you for your patience and flexibility as we once again work diligently to pledge to keep our camp families, staff, and communities safe. We are looking forward to Summer 2022 and working with you to make it fun and safe for our campers!


PARTNERS & OPERATING STATUS

Please note the following operation status at the following partnering facilities and possible implications for current summer camp operating plans.

NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility and Visitor Center
– Currently, group tours and visits are not permitted on the main and island bases. As COVID-19 restrictions change, we will keep you informed of any plans to tour the facilities during camp. We will make alternate plans to tour aerospace, STEM industry, and higher education facilities if group access is unavailable at NASA.

Chincoteague Bay Field Station – Currently, this facility plans to return to full operation in 2022. Campers and staff will be housed at this facility for the duration of the summer camp season unless notified otherwise.
