Summer camps

During our summer camps, we teach space-based Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics using our core curriculum based on Engineering, Rocketry, Space Science, Earth Science, and Space Citizenship. 

Summer Camps

Join us for an adventure this summer at our day camps. Moon Base Camp is designed for grades 3 and 4, Mars Camp is created for grades 5 and 6, and Robotics hosts grades 7 - 10. This summer's camps are located in Chantilly, VA.  



Moon Base ONE Grades 3 - 4    Mars Base Grades 5 - 6


Moon Base One and Mars Base summer camps are co-ed day camps that introduce children to space exploration in a dynamic and tangible environment. Spend the week training like an astronaut to create the first permanent outpost off our home planet! Either on the Moon or Mars, learning how to live in a space base takes planning and is fun!


Wear spacesuits, test meteor impact craters,  design your own Lunar habitat, grown your own space plants, run simulations in Mission Control and the Moon Base, and launch rockets!

Camp staffers are teachers, scientists, and engineers with experience in a wide variety of space-related science and engineering fields.  



ROBOTICS Grades 7 - 10


In this software-intensive, week-long session, campers will build a robot with a gripper. They will learn to program the robot and control it with a USB joystick. At the end of the week, campers will remotely control the robot with a tablet or cell phone. Campers keep the robot they build!
