Contact Director Roberts at for future camp dates and locations.

  • For the ACE camps we have joined up with seven educational partners.  Our partners this year are Miami Dade College, Florida Memorial University, George T. Baker, I-Tech, Broward College, Emery-Riddle University and Miramar SHS.  Each camp will vary in length between three to five days.  Each organization has developed their specialized aviation related curriculum.  Each camp will include opportunities to interact with industry professionals, take aviation industry tours and each youth would have the opportunity to take a Discovery Flight.
  • For the Academies we partner with three cities (Doral, Miami Lakes and Opa-Locka) and the Miami Dolphins Community Service Academy).  The academy is two days of STEM activities for each city which is one day for the youth to interact with Aviation Professionals, experience Flight SimulatorsNASA Smart Skies training and other STEM educational activities.  On day two each city selects youth to experience a day at the airport.  The youth selected by the city will have opportunity to tour the Opa-Locka Airport Traffic Control Tower and the USCG Facilities.  They also will take a Discovery Flight that is conducted by Flight schools that partner with SAFEE.

Dear Sirs,

I want to thank you for the opportunity given to my son, Alexander M. Martinez, to attend the Safee ACE Camp this summer; he has not stopped talking about it.  It is so wonderful to hear him talk about the different areas of aviation and to see the impact the “etiquette” part of the class had on him and his confidence.

I am ever so grateful to all the professionals that took the time to share their experience and to impact the lives of these children in such a positive manner.

May God continue to bless each and every one of you with the continued ability to touch children’s lives.

With warm regards,

Mrs. Veronica R.
