Learn about the upcoming missions that NASA has planned for astronauts, as well as all of the roles that astronauts have to fill when going to space! At the end of the week, it’s launch day for your mission! Climb aboard as we get ready for Astronaut Training!

Please note that masks will be required unless campers are social distanced and eating snacks.

$50 Weekly Extended Care is available for any child in need of early drop-off, late pick-up and/or noon care during each Summer Camp week. AM Camps are from 9AM-11AM. PM Camps are from 1-3PM. Early drop-off is available beginning at 8 AM and late pick up is available until 4PM, allowing working parents time to get their child here before work as well as additional time for pick-up following the PM camp. It is also convenient and required for families that sign their child(ren) up for both AM & PM camps during the same week. Children staying for noon care must bring a sack lunch; meals will not be provided by the District.
