  • Camp under the stars at Houston Space Center
    Scout families, camp under the stars!
    Scouts are courteous, trustworthy and helpful, so what better group to help launch our new Family Camp-Out program? We’re inviting you to be part of an exciting pilot on Oct. 28. This is a chance to sleep under a giant Boeing 747 and the space shuttle replica Independence with the stars overhead.
    Reserve your spot today:

    You and your family will navigate your own space exploration journey while engaging in science, technology, mathematics and engineering related activities. Build model rockets, explore robotics and train for spaceflight in our all new Family Camp-Out.

    Activities cover an array of difficulty levels to engage visitors of all ages. Explore robotics in our Robotics Challenge Arena 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 models, one-of-a-kind artifacts and more. 

    You and your entire 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 the shuttle carrier aircraft NASA 905 and our high-fidelity shuttle replica Independence.
    Indoor campers can get in on the fun as well. All you need is a sleeping bag and a pillow to complete your campsite inside our museum surrounded by some of the rarest spaceflight artifacts on Earth.
    Please note that all campers must be at least 5 years old.

    Sign up for this incredible experience and launch your family camping trip into orbit!
