Girl Scout Camp-ins

Girl Scout Camp-In

Space Center Houston engages Scouts in an interactive and hands-on learning environment. Scouts will have an enriched experience in our Scout Camp-In program that teaches young girls about the science, technology, engineering and mathematics involved with space exploration. Each camp-in is tailored to the individual ages of the Scouts. The activities are badge-inspired, STEM-based and all about space!

New activities

Come experience Space Center Houston’s all-new Girl Scout Camp-In 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 all-new Girl Scout Camp-Ins.
