One small step to sign up, one giant step towards a bright future. Astro space camp located at Odyssey Elementary School in the Ogden School District is a space program with multiple summer camp and day camp options. Since 1991 Astro Space Camp has been helping students develop a love for science and engineering. With seven different camps to choose from for ages ranging from five to fifteen, each camp provides a unique opportunity for kids to get excited about inventing and engineering while learning to work in teams.  

At Astro Camp, kids can participate in a space mission simulation where they work in teams and experience what it’s like on a spaceship going to mars. Working in different squads with different responsibilities, the goal is to launch a satellite on mars and operate a rover on it. The space mission simulation is a great way for kids to get excited about space exploration. Besides the space mission simulation, kids who attend Astro Space Camp also can participate in a variety of different activities which include neutral buoyancy scuba training, an iFly skydiving experience, as well as museum and planetarium visits. At the end of each Astro Camp program, participants get to take part in a graduation ceremony attended by parents and family.

Students emerge from Astro Camp not only with a love for science but with a drive to work in science related fields. Kids who have participated in space camp have gone on to work as team leads for missile systems, air force pilots, and engineers. Other students have entered into the educational and medical fields. The Astro Camp is a great starting place for kids to understand science topics and how they can be applied in life or different careers. As the STEM field continues to grow and create more jobs, Astro Camp can help kids develop a love for science at a young age that will set them up for success.
