Media Advisory - And it's on! The Canadian Space Agency welcomes Junior Astronaut Camp participants

Press Release From: Canadian Space Agency
Posted: Monday, July 26, 2021

The Canadian Space Agency's (CSA's) Junior Astronaut Camp starts today! Between now and Friday, 52 young people from across Canadawill virtually join astronauts, engineers and scientists from the CSA for an exciting week of space training.

These young space enthusiasts will be challenged through a series of fun and engaging activities. They will solve problems, simulate operating a lunar rover, take part in physical fitness activities, and much more. The camp will give the participants a unique chance to learn about space careers and about the scientific, physical and leadership qualities they will need to develop for a future mission to the Moon.

Media can follow all of the camp activities on social media as well as on the CSA blog (available later today), where there will be new entries on a daily basis during the five-day camp.
