CNASA (Chickasaw Nation Aviation and Space Academy)

2020 Camps, Clinics and Academies Canceled

In this time of an unprecedented health crisis, we are continuing to monitor the spread and effects of the coronavirus. The health and safety of Chickasaws, employees and our community is always our top priority. As this virus has spread to communities across Oklahoma, we are working diligently to make our facilities safe for all. The best way to limit exposure and contain the spread of COVID-19 is to avoid situations where people are gathered and for all to remain safe at home.

To continue to protect our youth, families and staff, all 2020 Chickasaw Nation camps, clinics and academies have been canceled.

Our executive department is continuously monitoring this unprecedented situation. Programs and services will be modified also as needed to safely serve our citizens. Visit for the most current information regarding closings, cancellations and program changes.

This is a weeklong summer academy for students interested in space, aviation, math and science. CNASA is designed to inspire excellence and to motivate and challenge the vision, talent and energies of our young people, encouraging them to pursue careers in science and technology.
