Train like an astronaut, fly like a fighter pilot or engineer robots of the future. Space Camp®
Space Camp® was founded in 1982 as the U.S. Space & Rocket Center® museum’s education program to promote the study of math, science, and technology. Trainees experience astronaut simulators, take command of a mission to the International Space Station and develop leadership and teamwork skills
Trainees at Aviation Challenge® camp are put to the test as they fly high performance jet simulators, hone their land and water survival skills, and practice leadership skills
Space Camp Robotics trainees experience air, land and sea based robots during their week at camp. Teams navigate the water using the Office of Naval Research SeaPerch robotics program, fly unmanned aircraft in our simulators and engineer robots to compete in a space challenge
