Space Survival

Campers will learn what it takes to travel in space and the technology that makes it possible.

Space exploration is perhaps one of the most fascinating, awe inspiring and difficult feats for humans! Campers will learn what it takes to travel in space and the technology that makes it possible.

What goes into training and preparing for space travel? What effects does exploring the cosmos have on the body? What technology has been developed to support long-term space habitation? What is daily life like when you’re living in space? And then there is the big question … what it might take for humans to live on other planets or in space permanently?

The questions we’ll tackle will really be out of this world!

Pricing

Summer camp is $300 for members and $350 for non-members. Camp fees include a daily snack, camp t-shirt, water bottle and all camp activities. Campers will need to bring their own lunch to help energize them for our scientific adventures.

Schedule

Camps will be held from 9 a.m.–3 p.m., Monday through Friday. After-camp care is available until 5:30 p.m. for $50 per week, per child to help make these extraordinary experiences possible for all schedules. Families must register prior to using this service.

Procedures

Waitlist Procedure

Summer camps are popular and will sell out. After registration opens, you will be able to add yourself to the waitlist if you're interested. If a camp spot opens, we will first email all Science Museum members on the waitlist at the same time. If the spot remains open after 24 hours, we will email the rest of the waitlist. We will do this any time a spot opens in a camp.

Scholarships

The Science Museum is pleased to offer a limited number of weekly summer camp scholarships to its Museums for All member families. If you are a current Museums for All member and would like to learn more about summer camp scholarships, please click here. If you are interested in becoming a Museums for All member, click here.


After registering for camp, please send in the completed emergency medical form and media release located inside the 2023 Summer Camp Guide to summercamps@smv.org.
