STARS Camps are International residential, project based education camps, with bases in Europe, Asia and the USA. Operating since 2015, we specialize in space education. Our goal is to spark a love for science and creativity! STARS Camps activities are supervised by science teachers and correlate to middle school and high-school curriculum in  Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Human Biology. STARS Camps are  run by MAPP-Kuwait and Orbital Space.

We aim to provide unique learning experiences for students, teachers, and the public through informal education and inspiring hands-on activities that stimulate both the mind and emotions.

Exploration & discovery experiences!

Inspiring students to excel in science, technology & leadership

STARS CAMP 2020 // PROGRAMS

Camps are correlated to school science standards, and  curriculum is designed and developed by a professional education staff with the experience and knowledge to make the programs both educational and fun.

All camps will take place at One Tranquility Base, Huntsville, Alabama.  All departures with our team will be from Kuwait. 

Full itinerary will include a visit to Kennedy Space Center in Titusville, Florida and downtime at Walt Disney Resort in Orlando, Florida.

Duration: 11 days, 10 nights  August 3 - August 14

Students work as a team and confront mission scenarios that require dynamic problem solving and critical thinking — 21st century learning skills required in the workplace. Throughout the week, students are immersed in astronaut training techniques using equipment adapted from NASA’s astronaut program. They learn about space hardware, enjoy an educational water activity and experience a spaceflight mission while learning about aerospace career opportunities.

The curriculum includes an educational movie in the National Geographic Theater.

Student will also have the opportunity to spend the day at Kennedy Space Center  and have some downtime at Walt Disney Resort in Orlando before heading back home.
