Overnight Experiences

Girl Scout Campouts

Space Center Houston engages Scouts in an interactive and hands-on learning environment. Scouts will have an enriched experience in our campouts that teaches young girls about the science, technology, engineering and mathematics involved with space exploration.

Each campout is tailored to the individual ages of the Scouts. The activities are badge-inspired, STEM-based and all about space!

Come experience Space Center Houston’s Girl Scout Campout activities. Immerse yourself in a setting where your imagination can take flight as you design, build, create, program and launch into a new world of opportunity and exploration.

Demonstrate Girl Scout leadership skills as you work with your peers to solve the real-world problems NASA often encounters. How can you make an astronaut’s job easier? How do you program a robot? How do you plan an astronaut rescue mission on Mars? Get ready to launch into an incredible experience in our Girl Scout Campouts.
