Space, Science, and YOU!

June 1st – July 31st, 2015
Week-long, half and full-day camps for kids ages 5-12

Every day, exciting new discoveries in space and science change our understanding of the universe around us.  Summer campers will use fun, hands-on learning to make their own discoveries and will explore how their findings affect our daily lives.

This year, aspiring astronauts will explore the unique, funny and odd features of space, become familiar with each planet, create models to grasp the size and scale of our universe, see what life is like in space, explore time and space travel with Dr. Who, and apply critical thinking skills to debunk popular space science hoaxes.

Challenger Space Center doors open at 8:30am for camp check in!
