Camp KSC® is a weeklong day camp experience with lifelong impact, launching kids into a galaxy of fun and learning! Kennedy Space Center, NASA’s launch headquarters, specializes in STEM learning at its best, offering a week full of hands-on science, technology, engineering and math activities for students ages 7 through 16. The program centers on NASA-based science and engineering and will challenge campers with curriculum comprising of exciting and educational adventures that are catered to fit each age group.

Campers are divided into teams based on their age at the time of camp attendance.

Pathfinder (ages 7-8)
Spirit (ages 9-10)

Camp KSC activities take place throughout Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, including the Astronaut Training Experience (ATX)®, Mars Base 1, Apollo/Saturn V Center, Space Shuttle Atlantis® and more. Each team participates in a variety of hands-on STEM challenges, labs and astronaut-training simulations designed specifically for their age group. Future space explorers will learn what it is like to live and work in space and will also have an opportunity to meet a veteran astronaut.

At the visitor complex, campers will dive into missions such as:

Mars habitation operations to solve possible emergencies
Spacewalk microgravity simulator, learning to work in a frictionless environment
Simulated spaceflight from Kennedy Space Center to Mars
Mars surface exploration using virtual reality
Botany Lab vegetable growth and harvesting, sending data to real NASA scientists
Mars rover robotics to optimize power for the Base
Engineering builds, themed to each age group
Hands-on STEM challenges
Team building, communication and collaboration

Tuition also includes lunch and snacks daily, a Camp KSC T-shirt and a graduation open house with modified admission tickets for the camper’s family.
