1. Ride in a spaceship
The Cosmodome is home to one of five of the world’s space camps; Space Camp Canada. It is also home to the Space Science Centre.
Children between the ages of 9 and 15 can enrol in space camp and will actually get the chance to ride in a spaceship; a simulated one. Space Camp Canada also has other activities to get the kids ready for outer space.
The Space Science Centre is great for everyone, especially those interested in space. It has a life-sized space shuttle cockpit on display, as well as a real lunar rock.
