Summer Camp Details

  • 2021 Summer Camp Update:

    Due to so many unknowns regarding Covid 19, no decision has been made to facilitate a Challenger Summer Camp at this time.  The decision will be made by February 28.  Interested families are welcome to contact us to have their name put on a waiting list.  No deposit is required.  If Challenger makes the decision to safely operate a summer camp, families on the waiting list will be contacted first.

    Please contact if you have any questions.


    Students attending the Challenger Summer Camp will “fly” two missions to Mars, video conference live with an actual NASA engineer, create a stop motion animated movie, create a podcast, and much more. When they are not part of a flight crew on a simulated mission, students are engineers and scientists designing vehicles and simple machines to be used on the surface of Mars. Like real engineers and scientists, campers will follow specific NASA guidelines such as cost effectiveness and durability. By the end of camp, students will have experienced some of the challenges actual NASA astronauts, engineers and scientists face.

    Camps are provided for students entering grades 4, 5, 6 and 7 in the Fall.

    • All camps will not exceed 24 students and will be facilitated by two Challenger Learning Center Mission Commanders.
    • Lunch is provided in all camps.
    • Parents are responsible for transportation to and from the Challenger Learning Center @ Kodak Center, 200 West Ridge Rd., Rochester, NY.

    July 20-24, 9am-3pm

    July 27-31, 9am-3pm
