The Concept

Please note the Kennedy Space Centre program requires a minimum of 24 students. 

For students interested in STEM programs, the Camp KSC International program should be considered. For the first 5 days students participate in unique adventures and educational activities, completing challenges based on science, technology, engineering and math components. From here students travel via Florida’s Everglades to the political heart of America. Tour highlights in Washington DC include Capitol Hill, the Washington Monument, and the world’s largest museum and research complex, the Smithsonian Institute.

 Please note that Camp KSC offers three camp options:

  • International 3 Day
  • International 5 Day
  • International Advanced 5 Day

 Teachers, please contact us for more detailed information on each camp, which will assist you in selecting the best option for your student group.

 Secondary school science and history students will improve science knowledge through practical learning and increase their knowledge of American history and politics.
