Space Camp - Kerbal Space Program

Ages 10-14

Camp Locations

2021 Space Camps in Los Angeles CA, Manhattan Upper East Side, NYC, Long Island NY, Miami FL, Houston TX & Seattle WA at Camp Tech Revolution!

Space Enthusiasts Wanted.

NASA. SpaceX. Boeing. Space is one of the most cutting-edge industries today and could have a huge impact on the future.  Many countries, universities and private companies are heavily investing in space research, discovery, and travel, and now you can too!

Have you ever considered working in the space industry when you grow up?  There’s no need to wait until college to learn more… get started now.

Join us to explore, innovate, and learn rocket science using the critically acclaimed simulation game Kerbal Space Program!

Welcome to Planet Kerbal, where you create, direct, and build up your own space program. You’ll get to design your own spaceships, conduct experiments to unlock new features, and launch and pilot your own multi-stage rockets within a physics-accurate space flight simulation. 

The possibilities are absolutely limitless when designing your spaceship – enthusiasts have made everything from Star Wars X-Wings to exact replicas of the Apollo rockets. Designs can range from small satellites with only a handful of pieces to huge spaceships with thousands of components. 

In addition to creating and flying rockets in Kerbal Space Program, campers also have the chance to build and customize their own space station using Roblox’s incredible game design studio! Advanced campers may even get a chance to program their rockets to fly! Working with Roblox allows for even more creativity and expression, where the physics doesn’t have to be quite as air-tight as in Kerbal, but can be just as fun.

As an additional activity, campers will get a chance to design their own custom space T-shirt! Campers quickly learn how to use graphic editing software, and put together a unique design. We’ll print the shirt and send it to you in the mail in just  a few weeks!

Valuable Learning Opportunities

Get Creative

At camp, you’ll get a chance to express yourself and use your creativity when designing all sorts of various rockets, space stations, planes, and even your take home custom T-Shirt!

Learn about Space

This camp is a great way to get some experience working with rocket science and space exploration. You’ll learn plenty about rocket history, physics, and how we navigate space.

Hands on Physics

When we first started launching rockets, there were only a handful of people who could pilot them because the experience and the physics are so different from flying a plane. The learning curve was steep and difficult. Now, because of realistic space flight simulations like Kerbal, it’s possible to get lots of hands on experience learning what it’s like to control a spaceship or rocket in space. This is a great opportunity to learn some physics and see it in practice!

Go on an Adventure

One of the coolest things about space is that it is vast and uncharted. At camp, you’ll have the opportunity to explore galaxies, visit planets and encounter scenarios you may have never imagined!

Private Lessons

Improve Your Skills with Private Instruction!

So many of our campers are passionate about the specialty programs they are participating in and want to further improve and develop the skills taught in camp.  Private lessons are a great way to do this!

Private lessons are offered at many of our specialty day camps.  You may book an AM lesson from 8:00am to 8:45am or PM lesson from 3:45pm to 4:30pm.

If your child is enrolled for a private lesson before camp, early arrival coverage is included in the cost of the private lesson on that day.  If your child is enrolled for a private lesson after camp, extended day coverage until 6:00pm is NOT included in the cost for the private lesson on that day.  

•  Lessons are offered in the subject matter of your child’s camp and tailored to your child’s ability level.
•  Private lessons are only offered to campers in attendance during that camp week.
•  All lessons should be booked via online enrollment.  Spots are limited!

One-on-one private instruction is an excellent way for campers to learn at their own pace, gain a better understanding and mastery of the skills and subject material, and enhance their experience at camp. Our instructors are friendly and supportive and they understand that every camper learns at his or her own pace. Our private lessons are designed to be hands-on and very focused, which enables the instructor and camper to concentrate on improving both strengths and weaknesses. Lessons are tailored to the specific camper, and in some instances, campers may use the private lessons to go above and beyond the camp curriculum in an educational and informative manner with the help of the instructor. Private lessons are optional, and are within the subject matter of the camp your child is attending that week.

Private lessons are limited and are booked on a first-come, first-served basis! Campers have the option to purchase more than one private lesson per week, and each lesson builds upon the progress made at camp and in previous lessons.

In addition to being a great supplement to the camp week, private lessons are convenient! Lessons occur either before camp (during Early Arrival) or immediately after camp (during Extended Day).

Private lessons can be booked online during enrollment, or by contacting our office via email at [email protected] or by calling one of our camp specialists at 888.854.CAMP (2267). If you already enrolled online and want to add lessons, you can log back into your account and add them to your camp enrollment at any time, subject to availability.

*The purchase of private lessons is considered camp tuition and falls under the terms & conditions provided on www.lavnercamps.com.

Question #1:  How much time do campers spend with their course?

Answer:  Campers will spend approximately 22.5-25 hours/week in their chosen course.

Question #2:  What are your staff to camper ratios?

Answer:  We guarantee a max staff to camper ratio of 1:5 to 1:10… or better!  We strive to create a camp environment where campers receive excellent supervision and high levels of attention during instructional periods.

Question #3:  Who are your instructors?

Answer:  Our instructors are the very best out of a large pool of qualified applicants we consider. We hire less than 5% of applicants. Typically, our lead instructors consist of teachers, college professors, undergrad/grad students from top-tier/Ivy League colleges/universities, and the occasional superstar student entering college in the fall. Assistant instructors typically consist of accomplished rising seniors. Our instructors are extremely knowledgeable in the subject area, passionate about working with kids, highly responsible, and all have cleared background checks. Instructors go through a rigorous orientation and training prior to the summer camp season and have constant support from on-site camp directors and our central office. We put them in a position to succeed… and they do!

Question #4:  Do you have an on-site camp director?

Answer:  Yes!  At least one on-site camp director manages Tech Revolution at each location. The director is trained to make sure that daily operations at camp are running smoothly, and is also CPR Certified & First Aid trained. Our camp director is available on site to answer your questions, and is available by phone and email if you need to communicate with him/her during the day.

Question #5:  Do campers usually attend for one week or more than one week?

Question #6:  How do you group the campers at camp?

Answer: Campers are grouped by age and ability. We run multiple levels of curriculum in each camp, allowing for campers to attend camp with us at any time during the summer, even if they are beginners. Our campers can sign up for any week and be placed appropriately in camp. This provides our camp families with maximum flexibility.

Question #7:  Do campers improve at camp?

Answer:  Yes! Campers receive approximately 22.5-25 hours of concentrated time in their camp activity per week. This, combined with our cutting-edge curriculum and high level instructors, allows our campers to improve a lot! They are also attending with other campers who share similar interests, which fosters learning through peer to peer interaction.

Question #8:  How do you keep camp fun?

Answer:  We hire fun and dynamic instructors! Campers are also selecting subjects that interests them. Numerous breaks are also incorporated throughout the day with opportunities for recreation and socialization. We offer a great balance of indoor and outdoor time, to make sure our campers have a chance to get fresh air, socialize, and play fun sports and games!
