Explore the closest thing to space on Earth. Space Center Houston strives to help scouts achieve their individual scout badges and electives by engaging them in an interactive and hands-on learning environment. The interaction between Space Center Houston staff, scout leaders, scouts, and parents is promoted through small group settings that not only engages scouts, but inspires them to create, learn, and grow as individuals within their group. Each Camp-In is tailored to the individual age of the scouts and the specific scout requirements to help complete the required aspects of a badge or adventure.
