Space Adventures EDITION
Monday 16th October 2023 - Park im Grüne & Astronaut Training & Astronaut Helmets
Welcome to the Astronaut Academy!
As young cadets of our Astronaut Training Program, we'll kick off the day with fun welcome games and interactive activities to get to know each other.
We will then head over to the Park im Grünen, where we will channel our inner astronaut as we engage in a series of sports and physical challenges designed to put our space-faring abilities to the test. From moonwalk relays to gravity-defying leaps, we'll be honing our agility and teamwork skills in preparation for the cosmic journey ahead.
But that's not all – our training will also include important lessons about the vast universe and the wonders of space exploration. With our astronaut helmets on, we'll listen to fascinating space facts and begin to prepare for the incredible space odyssey that awaits us this week.

Getting to the Moon
Tuesday marks a day of celestial preparation as we gear up for a lunar expedition.
Our mission: craft the vehicles that will carry us to the moon. We kick off by creating jet packs & rocket ships, fueling our imagination. Next, we're off to the Museum für Gestaltung at the Toni Areal, where young space enthusiasts will delve into the world of design, shapes, and materials. Curiosity will be our guide as we learn about the intricate art of crafting and design, laying the groundwork for our cosmic journey.
Day 2 promises a blend of adventure and artistic discovery, igniting young minds with a passion for exploration. As we assemble our crafts and explore design, we inch closer to our ultimate goal: reaching for the moon and beyond.

Solar System Exploration
Wednesday leads us on a solar system voyage. Our destination: Uetliberg.
Today, we embark on the Planet Trail, unraveling the mysteries of our cosmic neighbors. Amid this celestial exploration, we'll craft Nature Mosaics, capturing Earth's beauty.
Nature becomes our guide as we traverse the trail, learning about planets, their order, and their marvels. Each step offers an opportunity to deepen our cosmic knowledge. Day 3 intertwines outdoor exploration, artistry, and learning, as young space adventurers immerse themselves in the wonders of the solar system atop Uetliberg's summit.

Earth & other Cosmic Creations
Thursday unveils the marvels of Earth and beyond at Focus Terra.
Morning stories and crafts set the tone for discovery. Delving into our planet's distinctiveness, we craft Glitter Galaxy Jars—shimmering reminders of the universe's vastness.
We then head over to the Focus Terra Museum that engages young minds before playground exploration. Day 4 sparks appreciation for Earth's wonders while sparking imagination about the cosmic expanse. A day of education, creativity, and boundless exploration lies ahead.
Friday 20th October 2023 - Trampolino
Alien Adventure Finale
On Friday, our camp reaches its thrilling conclusion with an Alien Adventure like no other. As we bid farewell to our cosmic escapade, we're in for a high-energy experience at Trampolino, the indoor playground.
Our young explorers will bounce and play, bringing the week to an exhilarating close. The trampolines become launch pads, and laughter fills the air as we celebrate our shared journey through space-themed games and activities.
As we leap into the excitement of Trampolino, we'll also reflect on the space-themed memories we've created. It's a fitting finale, where joy, friendship, and the spirit of adventure unite to mark the end of a truly stellar week.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
We are so lucky to have found you! I can say, you were born to make kids happy! They've made such great memories during the camp and for that I am deeply grateful! I must confess, I was sad today when I realised that the camp ended. Every afternoon, I was so excited to hear what kind of adventures they experienced! Hope we can see you as often as possible!
