On Friday, Feb. 4, there's a mission for Grade 3 to 6 kids

And Friday, Feb. 11, the mission is for grades 6 to 9

This is a space simulation that you’ll log into from home, but it’s limited to 12 students for each session. Reach out now to pre-register.

Challenger Learning Center has also announced its Summer Camp schedule for 2022. There are both in-person and virtual opportunities beginning June 27 and running until August 26.  Just a heads up, if you are considering camp for your kid, don’t wait to register. They sell out.

There will be partial and full scholarships and also a military discount for currently serving parents or guardians.

But before we get to summer, there is also an in-person 5-day camp for February vacation. It sells out fast too.

No matter when, if Challenger Learning Center is in your child’s future get ready to hear:

“That was awesome, Mom”


“Best camp ever, Dad”


”All the way to the Moon, Alice”


“If humanity doesn’t land on Mars in my lifetime, I would be very disappointed.- Elon Musk”
