Volkswagen Academy Summer Camp

The Volkswagen Academy Summer Camp 2020 has been canceled due to COVID-19. This decision was made based on recommendations from health and public officials.

The annual Volkswagen Academy Summer Camp is free and open to the public. Open to teens ages 14 – 18, this exciting week is jam-packed with hands-on opportunities for participants to experience robotronics and automation in a real-life setting.
