If you are 11-17 years old, interested in NASA, robotics, rockets or engineering then the Virginia Space Flight Academy is the place to be this summer! All programs are a mixture of excitement and fun, with hands-on experiences.
Come and meet new friends and enjoy the adventure of learning about space.
Established in 1998, the Virginia Space Flight Academy is held near Wallops Flight Facility, an operational NASA and US Navy installation located on Virginia’s Eastern Shore and adjacent to Chincoteague Island, a picturesque family vacation destination.
Six co-ed residential (6 days 5 nights) camps will be held July through August.
Our buildings are on the campus of the Chincoteague Bay Field Station, adjacent to the Wallops Flight Facility main gate. Student Dormitories, built in 2010, are state of the art suite accommodations. 12 students share an air-conditioned suite of 4 bedrooms, with one overnight counselor per dorm. There are 2 bathrooms per suite with 2 separate showers with changing rooms, and 2 private toilet stalls each. There are separate suites for male and female campers.
Our students eat most meals at the Wallops Flight Facility Cafeteria. The food is excellent, and varied to accommodate most dietary requirements.
