Camp Cosmos 2017

Camp Cosmos 2017 is a 1-day space science camp, launching kids into a Universe of fun and learning!

Please note: Camp Cosmos 2017 - Asteroid Day is a single day camp, unlike Camp Cosmos 2016

Las Cumbres Observatory is offering kids aged 8-12 years a day full of hands-on activities related to science, space and technology. Don’t miss the opportunity to reserve your child’s spot for summer 2017 with two dates available in the summer of 2017, June 14 and June 15.

  • Explore our Solar System, including the planets, asteroids and comets,
  • Learn what it takes to be an astronaut and practise some of their training exercises
  • Observe the Universe with Las Cumbres Observatory's robotic telescopes
  • Participate as part of a team in hands-on challenges
