Motorsport Summer Camp Fun!

Camp Motorsport’s summer camp is an exciting and dynamic motorsport-focused summer camp for boys and girls age 9 to 17.

Your child will get the tools they need to build confidence and become a proficient driver, while learning new skills and making new friends.

Camp Motorsport is located on 406 acres of beautiful rolling meadow, bordered by the Staunton River and surrounded by woods a short distance from the town of Clover, Virginia. Your camper will experience hands-on driving instruction and participate in a variety of traditional summer camp activities.

Campers receive basic and expert instruction in the classroom and on our 1.5 miles of paved go-kart track and 20 miles of off-road track and trails. They learn basic driving techniques like determining driving lines and proper hand placement to more advanced techniques such as threshold braking.

DRIVING ADVENTURES

Camp Motorsport’s go-kart track is over 1.5 miles with 15 unique turns and 3 distinctive configurations. Campers master their skills and dramatically increase track time on a daily basis. 20 miles of off-road wooded trails provide a variety of terrain and difficulty levels for beginning and experienced off-road drivers, from hill climbs to creek crossings! When your child is off the track, they will be learning the STEM aspects of automotive design, including what makes a NASCAR pit crew tick to the mechanics of internal combustion engines.

SUMMER CAMP ADVENTURES

Camp Motorposrt 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 Camp Motorsport, campers also experience an amazing social community of kids and staff from around the world!

HEAR FROM OUR

Happy Campers & Parents

Dear Charlie, I am writing to thank you so much for hosting my group this weekend. John and his team were absolutely fantastic and the event exceeded my expectations in every possible manner. I had hoped to do some team/community building with my students by visiting Camp Motorsport and Astro Camp and I can assure you that this was achieved in the finest fashion. When we returned to our camp and relaxed around the campfire,the stories of the activities at Camp Motorsport dominated the conversation.Needless to say,these students now have a sense of community forged in their shared experiences that will last them a very long time.

I cannot thank John,Emil and Anthony enough for the utterly professional,congenial,and customer-centered experience that they delivered to my students and me.It became crystal clear to me that John is very passionate about his work and that surely leads to some phenomenal learning opportunities for your campers.I told John that when my son Henry turns 8 in three years,he will be coming to Astrocamp!

I am hopeful that we can hove other opportunities to collaborate in the future and I am very pleased to spread the word about the good work that your team does. I will also spread the word about camp staffing opportunities if you like.We have 4500 undergraduates here at Longwood and certainly a number of them would find your camp fascinating as a place to work.
