BREVARD COUNTY • KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLORIDA – Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex is bringing back its popular Virtual Camp KSC this spring with four new sessions. Registration for each three-day camp begins today.

“We initially developed Virtual Camp KSC as a pivot from our in-person Camp KSC last year,” said Therin Protze, chief operating officer, Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex.

“We were delighted at the outpouring of interest in the program, not just here in the U.S. but around the world. Since we began in July of 2020, we’ve virtually hosted nearly 3,500 kids from 48 states and 17 countries. While nothing beats an in-person camp experience, the virtual program has become an excellent way for us to expand our reach to future space explorers near and far.”

Virtual Camp KSC offers hands-on science, technology, engineering and math activities for elementary school age students. From the safety and comfort of home, campers can complete engaging and fun activities centered on NASA-based science and engineering.

During the three-day, online camp campers will connect in real-time via Zoom video conference to a member of the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex education staff for each three-hour session.
