The Cosmosphere is proud to offer programs that are as unique and exceptional as the young people we serve. With our professional staff, the Cosmosphere trains, educates and entertains young leaders of all ages and interests. From from programming robots to detecting radiation in a cloud chamber, the Cosmosphere knows what will inspire, motivate and train youth for the impossible! 

Badges, patches, awards, and journey requirements in space and related STEAM subjects can be earned at the Cosmosphere. Programs are available for Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, American Heritage Girls, 4-H, church groups and more! All participants will receive a customized Cosmosphere patch. 

Our Summer Camp Scouting programs have also been expanded with five different Merits of Space camps available and programs for other organizations as well.
