SAN ANTONIO  -- Air Force Services Agency officials here recently announced the call for three Air Force teen camps for 2011.

The annual camps are designed to help Air Force youth build leadership skills and/or aspire to careers in space or aviation.

The Teen Aviation Camp will be held June 4-9 at the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colo., and is designed to give youth an experience that will help them decide if aviation or the academy is a career choice. Participants will get to fly inside a Cessna 145 among other aviation activities. Applications for this camp are due by April 1.

The Teen Leadership Camp will be held July 11-15 at the University of Texas at San Antonio. This camp will give youth a glimpse of what university life is like while developing their leadership skills. Activities include team building, rope courses, conflict resolution and public speaking. Applications for this camp are due by April 15.

The Air Force Services Space Camp 
will be held July 24-29 at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville, Ala. The camp allows youth to experience, imagine and interact through space shuttle mission simulations, tours of the space center and the chance to witness everyday challenges faced by astronauts. Applications for this camp are due by April 15.

All applicants must be a dependent of an active, Guard, Reserve or retired Air Force member or an Air Force civilian. Applicants must be entering their Sophomore or Junior year this fall to apply for the aviation camp, while the leadership camp is open to students who completed their Freshmen year. The space camp is open to youth ages 12-18. 

Teens interested in applying must complete a nomination registration form and submit the form to their installation youth program. Selected participants will be notified approximately three to four weeks after the application deadline.

Attendees will only be responsible for transportation costs; all lodging, meals and program costs will be at no charge to participants.
