The YMCA Canberra Space Squad is Australia’s only live-in camp program for students in Years 6-9 who love space!

It is an action-packed school holiday space experience that you won’t want to miss.

For five days, we learn all about space, meeting scientists, engineers, physicists, astronomers and Astrophysicists.

We’ll visit and experience the Advanced Instrument and Technology Centre (AITC) and touch satellites, look at dwarf galaxies orbiting around Centaurs A, hear about how stars collide as well as visiting NASA deep space communications complex and Questacon and launching rockets and flying drones.

Camps are held in Canberra with participants staying at the YMCA Bush Capital Lodge.

The Space Squad camps are organised by YMCA Canberra, who have organised and delivered camps and children’s activities for over 75 Years in Canberra. Each camp has an experienced camp leader, as well as a team of dedicated volunteers.
