The ultimate Space Camp mission starts here at the birthplace of America’s space program.
Learn about real-life applications for STEM subjects at the Huntsville Space Camp. Students will experience an all-American camp with some of the most exciting simulators on offer. From flights simulators to learning basic land and water survival skills, the NASA space camp programs combine critical thinking, hands-on learning and teamwork. Students are encouraged to engineer solutions for real-world problems.
These camps are run by the U.S. Space & Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama and Space Camp. Graduates leave inspired to take more STEM classes and many have said their camp experience encouraged them to enter a STEM field such as aerospace, energy, education, biotech or technology.
DAY 1: TRAVEL DAY
Depart from your closest international airport and fly to Huntsville.
DAY 2-6: CHECK IN AT SPACE CAMP
Spend 5 days in the hands of the educators at the Advanced Space Camp program.
DAY 7: ADVANCE SPACE CAMP GRADUATION & FLY TO ORLANDO
After graduation take a flight to Orlando. Explore the Kennedy Space Center visitor complex and enjoy lunch with one of NASA’s astronauts.

These exciting camps run throughout the year for 5 to 6 days, often starting on a Sunday, and finishing with graduation on a Friday. Your students will stay onsite and take part in activities from 8.30 am until 9 pm every night. Student trainees work together, experiencing simulators, building robots and completing space missions. Find out what it really means to be an astronaut; there is no better place to learn about space and space exploration. Space Camps curriculum teaches principals of STEM, using real-world examples and advanced technology.
Students will learn real-world applications of STEAM principles as they build, program and test their own robots incorporating wireless control technology into their designs. Piloting their own robot will put their skills to the test as they take part in a series of challenges and competitions. Using RealFlight drone simulations and Unmanned Aerial Systems, students will develop the art of flight.
Students experience a one-of-a-kind centrifuge simulator, build shelters and learn how to find food in advanced wilderness training. This 5-day aviation-themed space camp gives students the chance to take on the role of fighter pilot, marine or navy seal and practice water-survival skills with hands-on activities in the U.S. Space & Rocket Center on-site manmade lake. With retired aircraft onsite, students will explore aviation principals and airframe design.
The Advanced Space Academy at Space Camp Alabama is an immersive experience for your STEM students. Through a series of astronaut training exercises, engineering challenges and activities, your students will go on their own space mission to Mars. It’s important to prepare for every contingency so students are encouraged to think outside of the box, anticipating problems and scenarios. Students will develop their STEAM knowledge when building a rover and completing a rocket recovery mission. This program is a college-accredited program through the University of Alabama.
"As a result of this trip, we have three students considering picking up mechanical engineering at university, and a host of students considering STEM-related A-Levels. An action-packed, awe-inspiring week away. I can't wait to go back next year!"
"I believe the memories created on an international school trip can drastically enhance a student's entire learning experience. Being immersed in real-life learning is the most powerful educational experiences one can gain."
"The experience for us was personalised, accessible and our consultant was interested in us. This makes the world of difference when you're travelling with students"
“This trip has taken the top spot for my career highlights to date! The experiences and the way in which the students conducted themselves and embraced opportunities, even when they were out of their comfort zone, will stay with me forever. I don’t know if it gets better than this.”
Explore two of America's most famous cities, Washington and New York City! Further students' understanding of history and politics in the US, and its impact on the rest of the world.
"Educating Adventures was able to help me plan the trip each step of the way. The team had a solution for every scenario, which made me feel extremely reassured."
Students are given the chance to gain a new skill, discover a new hobby and have a memorable educational experience with their friends.
