Science and Adventure Summer Camp Fun!

If you have kids ages 8-17 who are interested in a science and adventure summer camp experience, AstroCamp is the perfect place for them!

Kids who join one of our six fun-filled one-week sessions, or the two week session, enjoy the experience of a lifetime learning science, developing new skills and having fun with newfound friends.

AstroCamp is located on 406 acres of rolling meadow surrounded by woods and bordered by the Staunton River near the town of Clover, VA. Your camper will experiment in hands-on science labs, get astronomy training, and participate in a variety of camp activities that include traditional summer camp fun!

AstroCamp Virginia is a STEM-based science and adventure summer camp that pushes campers to deepen their understanding of science. Campers participate in hands-on activities playing in our state-of-the-art labs, building and launching rockets and searching the night sky with our vast array of telescopes.

OUTDOOR ADVENTURES

AstroCamp is a place where your child can safely test their physical and mental limits through outdoor adventure activities. In a challenge-by-choice environment, every camper is supported to try activities such as swimming, canoeing, go-karting, or the giant swing. At AstroCamp, campers also experience an amazing social community of kids and staff from around the world!

SCIENCE ADVENTURE EXPLORE

Our state-of-the-art labs and observatory enable us to create an environment that enlivens the senses and builds an even greater thirst for knowledge within each camper. Whether it’s building and launching rockets, or crashing a cosmic lander, campers are engrossed in fun hands-on experiential learning.

Happy Campers & Parents

My son just attended the 2 week session and absolutely loved it! He can not stop talking about everything he learned and the things he did. This is a great camp! I was really impressed at how engaged the leaders were. They seem to really love what they do and it showed! Thank you Camp Motorsport! He had a great time and requested that we send him back every year!
