Pathfinder

Pathfinder® provides an exciting introduction to Space Camp®®, Aviation Challenge® Camp or Space Camp Robotics in three-day, two-night programs for groups.

Select the space option and enjoy a program that includes a space mission, space history and astronaut training on authentic training simulators! During the simulated space mission, trainees work in mission control or launch as a part of the flight crew.

The aviation option teaches principles of flight and flight physiology while immersing students in activities where they learn land survival techniques, fly air-to-air simulated missions and compete in a Top Gun competition.

Pathfinder robotics features basic building, engineering and programming lessons for aerial, land and underwater robots. This program culminates with a timed robotics challenge and also introduces such business concepts as efficient time management and use of materials.

Groups have the option to attend Monday to Wednesday, Wednesday to Friday, or Friday to Sunday sessions. Adult chaperones participate in this program.
