PARI has a camp for every student scientist:

Our Mission Control camps provide simulated missions that cover the many topics and skills necessary for a successful exploration of world beyond our own.  We’ll use the same kinds of processes that NASA, SpaceX and others use in developing and conducting journeys into space.  

PARI’s research based camps are aimed at the camper who wants to experience what its like to be a researcher in astronomy, astrophysics, and astrobiology.  Scientists and researchers with careers in space science lead this academically challenging curriculum that has been refined for nearly two decades.

Mission Control: Martian Frontier
-Do you have what it takes to plan a mission to another planet?
Gain confidence, learn space science, and strive to make it to Mars in this combination role-play—academic camp.  The wide variety of topics makes this camp a good fit for a range of interests.  You’ll tackle challenges in space craft and habitat design, astronaut health and well-being, and capturing public interest while swaying others to support your plan.
Above & Beyond
-Models the research process followed by professionals in space science!
Our signature and most academically intensive camp explores the universe through astronomy, physics, and astrobiology.  Use real research-grade instruments and data to investigate objects like super-nova remnants and distant star clusters.  One small step as a space explorer, one giant step in launching your career in space.
Milky Way Trailblazers
-Map the Milky Way and plot a path for future explorers!
Discover how to chart the distribution of hydrogen gas and its movement in our home galaxy as a galactic cartographer.  You’ll use giant NASA built radio telescopes to uncover data that can’t be captured any other way.  This camp is part of a partnership with Clemson University and includes a field trip to their astronomy research labs.
Space Cadets
-Prepare for Space Exploration – Experience what it takes to travel beyond Earth
From space food and meteorites to rockets and invisible space rainbows, this camp will take you out of this world.  This camp is part of a partnership with Clemson University and includes a field trip to see exciting work in astronomy.
