We had so much fun, and we can't wait for next year! Here are some examples of camps that we offered in Summer 2019. Please check back in March 2020 for updated camp descriptions and registration information.
The San Diego Air & Space Museum welcomes children with disabilities and other special needs, and our goal is to ensure that all children have access to our programs. Please contact us so we can make accommodations to allow your child’s successful participation.
