My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Virginia Space Flight Academy, Wallops Island, VA, USA
Out of this world !
My son attended for 6 years. He looked forward to all the different adventures they did -making and launching rockets - robotics - visiting NASA, live video chat with the astronauts in space.
He has made friends for a lifetime. One year they visited NASA and saw a rocket that was actually launched into space. Another year one of the campers Alyssa Carson he became friends will be the youngest woman astronauts to go into space. Campers come from all over the world. The counselors, staff, and employees and military from NASA share their experiences as well.
This past summer he returned as a camp counselor. Through his experiences he is now studying to be an aerospace engineer.
Big thank you to Helen for all she has done to make the program an experience of a lifetime for all the campers!
