This summer, young explorers have the opportunity to embark on a thrilling and educational adventure as Como Hotels and Resorts presents exclusive Summer Space Camps at COMO Maalfushi, COMO Point Yamu, and COMO Uma Canggu.
These one-of-a-kind camps, available for guests aged 8-16, offer a unique chance to learn from esteemed experts like NASA veteran astronaut Nicole Stott and citizen astronaut Sarah Sabry. Here are some exciting activities and educational experiences awaiting the participants, all while being immersed in the beautiful natural surroundings of each location.
Exploring the Wonders of Space
Under the guidance of renowned experts Nicole Stott and Sarah Sabry, the young participants at the Summer Space Camps can anticipate a captivating itinerary, meticulously designed to educate and inspire aspiring astronauts.
One of the highlights of the camp is a captivating team activity where young explorers create stunning body art visible from above. This art emphasizes the importance of unity and the power of teamwork – vital qualities for any future astronaut.
Space nutrition is a unique challenge faced by astronauts, and at the camp, participants will have the chance to craft and taste their very own space food creations. This experience will provide valuable insights into the intricacies of eating in space, enhancing their understanding of space missions.
The role of art in space is explored as campers assist in the design and personalization of a space suit. This activity fosters creativity and innovation, allowing young minds to unleash their imaginative prowess in the cosmic realm.
A Special Connection to Space
While participants won’t physically journey to space, their creations will. The space suits designed during the camp will be worn by real astronauts, and handwritten letters will be sent into orbit through Nicole Stott’s ‘Postcards to Space’ project. This heartwarming initiative puts smiles on the faces of brave travellers and leaves the young campers with special keepsakes.
The excitement doesn’t end with the camp’s activities. Guests are encouraged to bring their families along to create mini rockets and witness exhilarating blast-offs, igniting curiosity and awe-inspiring wonder for space exploration.
The Summer Space Camps go beyond space education; they also emphasize the importance of preserving our planet and raising environmental awareness.
