As Astro Recruits progress toward their end goal of establishing life on another planet, they must first successfully live in outer space. In Mission: Astro Lab, campers will not only work together as a team to send crews to the Astro Lab (a space-based experimentation station modeled after the real International Space Station), but also work with private companies to make space more accessible for all, focus on overcoming health and mental illness issues which arise while living in space and ensure fair working conditions – even in outer space – for everyone! During this camp experience, Astro Recruits will train for weightlessness by being introduced to SCUBA and complete high altitude balloon experiments in preparation of their mission.

  • Train for weightlessness with an introduction to SCUBA training
  • Test payloads and launch a High Altitude Balloon as high as 100,000 ft in the air
