Space Squad

We love Space, and Canberra has some of Australia’s greatest Space attractions. In fact, some of the first images of a man walking on the moon were beamed from Honey Suckle Creek, a tracking Station in Canberra. It’s an experience not available anywhere else in Australia. Y Canberra’s Space Squad is Australia’s only residential holiday camp program for students in Years 6-9 who love Space. Over five packed days, our campers will be immersed in Space and the Space Industry.
