Camp Chop Postponed 2021

Unfortunately, due to State guidelines and the nature of the Camp CHOP program operating primarily indoors with close contact, we are not able to operate the CHOP Program this summer.  Camp Motorsport and AstroCamp (all located at the Camp CHOP facility) will be operating this summer.  Guidelines do allow us to run Camp Motorsport and AstroCamp safely with a few minor accommodations to allow for COVID safety. Registration is open! We look forward to having you join us at Camp CHOP in Summer 2022!
