Youth Can Engineer a Great Summer at Cosmosphere Camps

Scuba diving to train for spaceflight, Moon and Mars landing simulations, and training for a Martian settlement mission 650 feet below the surface of the Earth are among the unforgettable adventures awaiting participants in 2022 summer camp experiences at the Cosmosphere.

Elementary students entering 3rd grade and above explore the complexities of living in space while having fun meeting “their people” in a STEM-centered environment.

Students entering 7th-12th grades practice teamwork and problem-solving, making friends for life in mission teams while learning about the variety of professions engaged in STEM and aerospace industries.

“Cosmosphere’s high school-aged campers experience the power of professional networking as they connect with Cosmosphere Camp alumni now working for NASA, SpaceX, and other major players in space fields,” said JoAnna Strecker, director of education at the Cosmosphere.

Cosmosphere Camp registration opens October 26 with limited-time offers, including exclusive Holiday Gift Bundles with boxed surprises for gift-giving, available through November 27th, and a Holiday Special allowing parents to register campers for only $70 down before December 31, 2021.

Building on a rigorous base of Next Generation Science Standards and work readiness skill development, Cosmosphere Camp participants learn how a broad range of skills, from journalism to health care and agriculture, contribute to the excitement and success of living and working in space.

This year’s camps have added Java Code to the lineup of activities that includes programming robots, designing rockets, flying drones and even learning to fly real planes!
