Thank you for your interest in the museum's summer Aerospace Camps.
All camp spots are currently filled. Please follow us here for 2024 camp announcements.
This summer, the National Museum of the United States Air Force will offer free one-day beginner-level aerospace camps for students who will enter grades 5 or 6 in the 2023/24 school year.
During these camps, students will learn the basics of rocketry principles while having fun building their own model rockets. All the necessary supplies for these free camps will be provided. Students will not launch their rockets during the camp but information will be provided for when, and how, the students will be able to launch their rockets locally at a later date. All materials required for rocket launches will be provided at the scheduled launch event.
Camp location is at the museum.
Each camp day will run from 9:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
