Advanced Space Academy

My name is Samuel Lightle, I'm 15 years old and a freshman at Zanesville High School.  I'm on our school robotics team and do independent study to help achieve my life-long dream to work in the aerospace field.  First I wanted to be an astronaut and explore space, but in recent years I decided I want to design and build the rockets used in space exploration.  Going to space camp will help me come closer to my goal and provide real life experiences related the field of work.  However,  going to space camp requires a large sum of money, and that's where I need your help.  The base fee for the camp camp is $1100, then $100 for a charter bus to and from the campus, finally 500-600 for a flight there and back.  I would greatly appreciate any amount that you are able to contribute towards my goal.
