Our 3-5 day Camp KSC programs enable your students to become fully immersed in space centre life and STEM learning.
Orlando is a place where rockets launch and exploration is second nature. Inspiring the next generation of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths students at the gateway to space.
In Orlando your students can either take part in NASA's Camp KSC International where they will simulate life on mars including a botany lab in Mars Base 1 and train at Kennedy’s brand new Astronaut Training Center, or take part in a 3 or 5 day robotics program with Space Trek where you’ll design and program robots culminating in a Mars Surface Mission.
The amazing exhibits and inspiring shows at the Kennedy Space Center among other activities will immerse students into the science and history behind space exploration giving context to your STEM classroom learning.
Orlando also offers rich performing arts and museum scenes; several fantastic nature preserves; fabulous cuisine and top theme parks for schools. Your school travel advisor will be able to help you create a customised trip itinerary that caters to your learning objectives. We are a school tour company with years of experience and personalised support. Start planning your school trip today!

Experience space travel without leaving the planet and participate in the most realistic simulations on earth at the Kennedy Space Camp in Orlando. Students will receive hands-on training from experienced educators and meet a veteran NASA Astronaut. Other activities on offer include a backstage visit to Universal Studios theme park, a free-fall workshop at i-Fly, and an exhilarating airboat ride through the Florida Everglades. Expect to leave having tried new learning experiences, with students more prepared for entering STEM jobs in the future.
View ten-story high rockets from all eras of space exploration and walk through a full-size space shuttle mock-up. See a 3D-IMAX space film on a gigantic five-story screen, and witness an actual Gemini program capsule on display. Some recent additions to the Center now include the Space Shuttle Atlantis and The Hubble Telescope exhibit. Students also get a behind the scenes glimpse of Kennedy Space Centre on a NASA Bus Tour to the LC-39 Observation Gantry and the Apollo/Saturn V Center! The amazing exhibits and inspiring shows will immerse students into the science and history behind space exploration.
Physics and freefall workshop at the I-Fly wind tunnel. Enjoy a 40-minute lecture taught by an accredited physics professor on the physics of freefall and the technology behind the wind tunnel, followed by a question and answer session. Everyone will leave this class educated and exhilarated after experiencing a one minute freefall in a state-of-the-art vertical wind tunnel - with wind speeds of 130 to 175+ mph!
Students will go behind the scenes, beyond the screen, and jump right into the action of their favourite movies at Universal Studios, the world's premier movie and TV based theme park. The motto of Universal Studios is ‘ride the movies,’ and that’s definitely what students will be doing! With great rollercoasters, shows and characters filling the park fun is certainly on the agenda!
"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.
