Interns are high school students who have the experience and temperament to act as student leaders, learning the Space Voyage leadership and competency models and receiving real-world leadership experience.
Space Voyage Summer Space Camp: Our space simulation day camp inspires students to "think like an astronaut." Three programs are offered: Pathfinders ages 6-8, Cadets ages 9-16, Interns ages 14+. One part Montessoril, one part Adventure park, one part Santa’s House. FUN!
Space Voyage is best described as a simulation in which groups of students are immersed in the career cross-over skills involved in being an astronaut. The students are invited to think and work "as if" they are astronauts, focusing on positive thinking, problem solving, communication, teamwork and pilot skills. A physical environment is created using wall murals, posters, computer work stations and hands-on investigations and experiments. A positive emotional environment is established and enhanced by the Space Voyage program leaders, creating the correct physical and emotional milieu for optimum learning and growth. In this setting, the program invites exploration and encourages proficiency, explains standards of achievement and expected norms of behavior, empowers individual and group achievement, and stresses the importance of group cohesion and tolerance for others. Staff ratio is 1:6. The program is designed for ongoing studies; many students return from one summer to the next. Described by returning students as one-part Santa's house and one-part Disney World, without the waits. It's the most wonderful week of the summer. FUN!
