Space Camp Turkey was an amazing, once-in-a lifetime opportunity. I got to meet new people, try new foods, and expand my knowledge about space. There were many hands-on activities and simulators that taught us more about space and we did many team building exercises. I would recommend this camp to anybody, even if you don’t have an interest in space, because by the end of the week, you will.

Space Station Mission
This activity is the highlight of the program!
During our simulated space station missions, campers are assigned special positions (such as Commander on the Space Shuttle Discovery, Flight Director inside Mission Control, or Flight Engineer in our Space Station).
Each member of the team 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.
Participants learn how to effectively communicate with one another, solve problems together, and work as a team to ensure overall success of the mission.
