Family Campout at Space Center Houston

Saturday, January 12, 2019

Launch your family camping trip into orbit in our all-new Family Campout program at Space Center Houston! Activities cover an array of difficulty levels to excite visitors of all ages. Explore robotics in our Challenge Area where you can build a robotic hand, program and operate a rover and more. Build your own rocket and then see how high you can launch it. Train like an astronaut and learn about spacewalks, the speed of light and crew assembly. Tour Starship Gallery, home to multiple flown spacecraft, astronaut training modules, one-of-a-kind artifacts, and more. You and your family can choose from two unique overnight camping experiences. Prefer to sleep in the great outdoors under the stars? Pack your tent and set up camp in Independence Plaza, right underneath a Boeing 747. Prefer to cozy up indoors? All you need is a sleeping bag and pillow to complete your campsite, surrounded by some of the rarest spaceflight artifacts on Earth. All campers must be at least 5 yea
