  • Price: $999*

Having proven that life is possible in outer space, in Mission: Lunar Trek, Astro Recruits shift focus to landing humans on the Moon, then work to support future habitation through successful lunar development. Campers will study architecture and construction principles in order to build tourism infrastructure once they arrive on the Moon, while also practicing financial fundamentals like budgeting as they plan lunar construction. Traversing the Moon’s surface proves difficult, so campers will compete in an advanced robotics challenge to develop the best mode of lunar exploration transportation. In preparation of their mission to land on the Moon, Astro Recruits will gain first-hand knowledge of the principles of aviation by experiencing powered flights.


  • Complete a mission to land on the Moon using both the Cosmosphere’s Mission Control Center and featuring the NEW Astralis capsule-based simulator modeled after the NASA Orion capsule
  • Compete in an advanced robotics rover challenge 
  • Get first-hand knowledge on the physics of flight with powered airplane training and flight in a single-engine airplane

"Most of the Cosmosphere Camps experiences directly relate to my job now. I've been a flight controller in Mission Control for both the Space Shuttle and International Space Station."
