A Selection of Camp Activities

 

All activities have seminars beforehand to explain the reasons behind the ‘experiences,’ followed by a de-briefing session after the event. Activities culminate in a full simulation of a mission.

The G. Force Accelerator

Experience three times the force of gravity as you spin like crazy in this simulator.

Area 51

Using principles from the "Taking the Right Lead" seminar, Area 51 will test your skills in the art of influencing others in such a manner as to gain willing co-operation towards a common goal.

Scuba

Microgravity simulators are necessary to prepare astronauts for space walks. Neutral buoyancy is the state in which objects suspended in liquid will neither sink nor float but maintain a constant depth.

Water Survival

The Mode & Abort briefing, applicable during the launch sequence and landing, covers procedure for a "bail out" water landing or splashdown scenario. This experience outs the theory learned to the test.

Multi-Axis Trainer

This simulates the disorientation felt if the space capsule went into a tumble spin during flight or more likely during re-entry. Regaining control quickly is vital for the crew's safety and survival.

Engineering Tasks

Produce a working rocket to launch and land with its payload in tact.

Build a bridge that will hold a designated weight... and more.

1/6th Gravity Chair

The gravitational force of the Moon is approx 1/6th that of the Earth. This chair simulates moon walking. A person weighing 120Lb. on Earth would only weigh 20lb. on the Moon.

The Space Shot

This motion simulator blasts you 160ft. in the air with 4G's of force giving you the sensation of lift off, followed by several seconds of weightlessness.

 

Pamper Pole, The Tower

Climb the 35ft Pamper pole culminating in the final 'leap of faith.' The tower has a twist as students find themselves linked together to reach the summit of the 42ft high wall before abseiling down.

Science Experiments

Many Scientific experiments will test the knowledge of the students in the space laboratories

Pilot Simulator

Each pilot receives simulator instruction in a space orbiter and also a fighter jet plane. After practise in taking off, manoeuvring and landing, the lights ar5e extinguished, screens are linked and the finale begins a 'dog fight' amongst the team.

Medics

Many anomalies will take place during the mission. The counsellors will present situations such as heart attacks, germ seepage poisoning, hyperthermia, air sickness, burns, black outs and more, all to test the students reactions to emergencies.

 

The extended Duration Mission EDM - 5 hours

mission controlThe aim of the mission is to repair a malfunctioning satellite in space from the shuttle whilst the payload specialists take the opportunity to complete experiments in pseudo zero gravity conditions and return, with a full crew, safely to Earth. Many anomalies will take place during the mission. The counsellors will present situations that could happen in space: electrical failure, damage caused by flying debris, medical issues and more. The answers lie within the 'brief and individuals' using their initiative

Graduation

graduation successCertificates and reward packs are presented to all trainees, prizes for top teams and a medal for the Highest Personal achievement 'The Right Stuff Award,' all decided jointly by the counsellors. The ceremony is conducted in a very professional manner, ensuring the graudates feel that they have achieved great success during this once in a lifetime Space Camp experience.
