ACE-Camp 2020 remains scheduled as planned – June 8th to June 12th. As we all navigate the unprecedented times of the COVID 19 pandemic, we have watched the developments daily to assess our scheduled camp for this summer. Our goal remains the same, providing campers an opportunity to explore aviation and aerospace careers in a safe and enjoyable environment. To that end, we are staying with our original dates for this year’s camp. We will continuously monitor the federal, state and local directives for addressing the current health threat and adjust as needed. If and when conditions change, we will reassess our plans and quickly pass the information along.
