2020 Summer Camps
Like so many other states, Washington has implemented a ‘Stay Home–Stay Healthy’ order due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. We are in full compliance and doing our part to keep our staff, volunteers, and community safe, in hopes of coming together sooner rather than later.
While the safety of campers remains the top priority for summer camps, we still intend to hold summer camps in July and August this year. We are making changes to our camps by:
- limiting camp classes to 12 students,
- updating our cleaning procedures to include the specific anti-viral measures suggested/required by our local Health Department, and
- developing alternative plans for off-site tours to accommodate any COVID-19-related limitations.
We have canceled two sessions (Foundations of Flight on June 30 and Your Future in Flight on July 22) of camp that were scheduled for early summer, due to the uncertainty of the duration of state restrictions. Families who have registered for the canceled camps are invited to enroll their children in later camp sessions. We’ve even reserved spaces for you! If you’re unable to reschedule, we will provide a full refund of enrollment fees. We will continue to closely monitor the situation. If we have to cancel camps due to COVID-19, you will be informed and registrations will be refunded.
We have moved many of our office functions into employees’ homes. If you have questions, don’t hesitate to contact us. Please be patient as we will have limited staff able to respond, however, rest assured that if you leave us a message we will get back to you shortly.
We hope that our PFEC families stay safe and healthy. Remember that we are all in this together and we will get through this. Thanks for being a Pearson Field Education Center supporter.

Pearson Field Education Center has a limited number of full and partial scholarships for Summer Camps. Scholarship funds are offered so that students, who otherwise could not afford to attend camps, can attend. Scholarships are awarded based on the applicants need and interest in STEM and aviation camp. First time applicants will be given consideration over those who previously received scholarships.
