What's Included

In this unique and popular camp, participants will experience what it would be like to train as a real NASA astronaut.

In addition, advanced astronauts will learn basic SCUBA diving skills that will enable them to participate in a one-day underwater spacewalk training simulation. SCUBA training and gear are included in this camp. (NOTE: SCUBA participants must be at least 10 years old and medically fit to dive. Additional forms are required to register for this camp.)
