Aerospace Academy Camp

Explore the history, science, and technology of flight at the New England Air Museum.

Aerospace Academy Camp is a state licensed day camp held at the New England Air Museum for children ages 9-11 interested in all things aerospace. Campers will participate in a range of hands-on activities focusing on the aviation science and history, aircraft restoration, flight simulators, drones, and much more! Campers will meet retired aerospace engineers and pilots, and end their week at camp with a special full day, behind-the-scenes field trip to the Hartford Jet Center at Hartford-Brainard Airport.

All sessions run Monday-Friday from 9:00am-3:00pm and will offer the same activities, programs, and field trips. Camp registration closes three weeks prior to each session's start date or when the session sells out, whichever occurs first.


Camp fees are due in full at the time of registration and registration closes three weeks in advance of each camp session, or when sessions sell out, whichever happens first. Child's parent or guardian must be an active New England Air Museum member at the time of registration to receive the member rate.

Additional Camp Forms will need to be submitted and approved by camp staff by your session's registration date. These forms will be emailed after your child's registration form and payment have been processed.

Here's what some families had to say about their child's experience at Aerospace Academy Camp last summer:

"Every day he came home excited about what he had done at the museum. This was one of the best camp experiences he has ever had.”

"There were so many amazing experiences. My son looked forward to each day and came home every afternoon full of interesting stories to share.”
