Activities

Family Space Camp weekend provides the adult and child an overview of space exploration while they experience space simulations. Your child’s self-confidence grows by the hour as you work together to accomplish your goals.

  • Observe the celestial objects in our night sky and watch NASA educational films
  • Have amazing amounts of fun trying four astronaut simulators together (*)
  • Build and launch model rockets as a team
  • Participate in our “Strange Science” lab experiments

(*)Participants must be at least 4 feet (120 cm) tall and weigh no more than 210 pounds (95 kg) to ride the simulators.

Participants with different genders (i.e., father-daughter or mother-son) will be accommodated in separate dorms.

Space Station Mission

This activity is the highlight of the program! 

  • During our simulated Space Station Mission, campers are assigned special positions (such as Payload Specialist, Mission Scientist, or Flight Engineer).
  • Parent and child can participate in the shuttle mission side-by-side as Commander and Pilot, or perhaps as Flight Director and Capsule Communicator
  • Each crew member is integral to the success of the mission. If a team member neglects a vital duty or assignment, it may have an adverse effect on the outcome of the flight
