GALACTIC SUMMER CAMP
It is an international summer science camp program specially created for students aged 9-15. The scientific and entertaining activities taking place at the Galactic Summer Camp offer a unique opportunity for children to learn while having fun, build new friendships, and make the best out of their summer holidays.
Participants of the International Summer Camp programs, organized with the participation of students from foreign countries and offered in English from start to finish, have the chance to improve their English and make long-lasting friendships with campers from different countries. Unique training tools such as Generation Mars Interactive Exhibition Area, Discovery space shuttle and space station models are used in activities offered in a safe environment at international standards. With the interactive activities, an ideal environment is provided for team work, time management, problem solving and the development of self-confidence.
Summer science camp activities are held in six-day periods during June-August. Summer camp programs offered in some weeks are differentiated with special themes.

Space Station Mission
This activity is the highlight of the program!
During our simulated space station missions, campers are assigned special positions (such as Commander on the Space Shuttle Discovery, Flight Director inside Mission Control, or Flight Engineer in our Space Station).
Each member of the team is integral to the success of the mission. If a team member neglects a vital duty or assignment, it may have an adverse effect on the outcome of the flight.
Participants learn how to effectively communicate with one another, solve problems together, and work as a team to ensure overall success of the mission.
Special Events Night *
Space Camp Turkey was an amazing, once-in-a lifetime opportunity. I got to meet new people, try new foods, and expand my knowledge about space. There were many hands-on activities and simulators that taught us more about space and we did many team building exercises. I would recommend this camp to anybody, even if you don’t have an interest in space, because by the end of the week, you will.
