Peak Weeks – July 8 – August 16

Camp capacity is constrained mid-July through mid-August due to increased demand.  An additional $30 charge applies to camp sessions during this period to facilitate incentives for Aviation Camp staff members to maintain full availability, helping to boost camp capacity throughout these weeks.

Field Trips – Air & Space Camp, Flight Engineers Camp, and Spaceflight Tech Camp

The following camps have a field trip on the Friday of the camp week: Air & Space, Flight Engineers, and Spaceflight Tech. Field trips fall within the camp day so drop off and pick up times remain the same throughout the whole week.

Air & Space is the only Elementary Camp to attend a field trip. The Air & Space camp is priced $30 higher than the other (non-field trip) elementary camps due to the field trip fee.

All Intermediate Camps include a field trip. The costs of the field trip is included within the regular registration fee. Please note that the 3-Day session of Flight Engineers that runs from July 1-3 does not include a field trip.

Air & Space Camp and Spaceflight Tech Camp travel to the John D. Morgan park in Campbell, CA to launch the model rockets they build throughout the camp week.

Flight Engineers Camper visit the USS Hornet Museum in Alameda, CA.

Information about field trip day is communicated during the week of camp. Campers must bring their lunch, snacks, and water bottle with them. Parents may attend the field trip under their own transportation and admission fees (fees for the USS Hornet only).
