Destination Science, which runs camps in five states, changes programs annually. This year, it's featuring a weeklong Astronaut Training Camp that will teach kids how NASA is handing some space travel over to entrepreneurs and what it's like in an outer space capsule, says program director Kathy Heraghty. Other new topics include the Ultimate Survival Zone, focusing on how organisms have survived over the years, and Wacky Robot Camp.Hours: Full-day Credit cards: Accepted Season: Summer
