EUROPEAN SPACE CAMP
European Space Camp is an annual week long summer camp held at the Andoøya Space Center in Northern Norway. The next camp is held from 8th to 15th of August 2019. ESC gives the opportunity to 28 young adults to spend six days running different aspects of a real rocket campaign including the launch itself. Scattered throughout the week are a number of lectures from some of Europe’s top scientists and Engineers on topics varying from Rocket Physics to the Northern Lights.
The week is not purely group work and lectures, plenty social activities are organised too. There is a hike up the mountain to the ALOMAR research station, swimming under the midnight sun followed by a trip to the sauna, as well as volleyball and a GPS challenge, all in the stunning surroundings of the Andøya Space Centre.
