Renaissance Academy's Farpoint Young Astronauts and Voyagers Attend Space Camp

Our Farpoint Cadets at the CMSEC

The USS Voyager at Renaissance Academy held its first 2-day summer space camp last week.  Our cadets had a great time flying an extended five-hour mission on the USS Voyager.  The camp started at 2:30 P.M. on day 1, ending that evening at 8:00 P.M.  Isaac Ostler flew his new mission with Maeson Busk working as his wing man at IIFX. 

Our cadets joined other campers at the Christa McAuliffe Space Education Center in Pleasant Grove for the second day of the 2-day camp.  Day two began at 8:30 A.M.  The campers signed in and were given a seniority rank. 



CMSEC director James Porter welcomed the campers and explained the day's schedule.  






The day's flight directors made their grand entrance, took their positions and waited for the disbursement.  Mr. Porter introduced the flight director, his / her ship, and the mission for that session. The campers chose which ship to fly based on their rank. 

Lunch was served at 11:30 A.M.

 



The CMSEC volunteers have life easy when it comes to meals in these camps.  Central School serves free community lunch to anyone under the age of 18.  The volunteers start their 30-minute lunch break in the school's cafeteria enjoying the free community meal; afterward, it's a short walk from the cafeteria to the gym to feast on a second, Space Center, provided lunch.

After lunch, the campers were redivided into new teams for their final, 5-hour mission.  

Camp surveys and voting for their favorite volunteers took up the camp's last 15 minutes. 


The volunteers lined up for introductions in the Lord of the Votes voting ceremony.

The camp ended at 5:30 P.M. According to the survey's, the Farpoint Cadets enjoyed the camp very much.  Joint camps between space centers is a good way for our students to experience the best experiential education available to your average mortal.  This camp between Farpoint at Renaissance Academy and the Christa McAuliffe Space Education Center was a win-win for both centers.


Flight Directors Devon and Natalie use every available minute to catch up on news and other work. There is never an idle moment at the CMSEC.
