MassMutual Jr.Space Camp
No matter how distant the space dream is, we firmly believe that if you dare to dream with perseverance, inquisitiveness and self - confidence, one day you will see "It is Possible!" .


Since the launch of MassMutual Jr. Space Camp Program in 1999, we have made over 130 Jr. Astronauts' dreams come true.

This year, ten children will once more be selected as Jr. Astronauts and MassMutual Asia will fully sponsor these eight outstanding children, each with one parent, to undergo junior astronaut training at an overseas Space Camp. Astronaut training not only stimulates children's interest in space exploration but also encourages their creativity, self-confidence and ability to handle challenges. Plus, this also represents a golden opportunity to develop a closer child-parent bond through learning and studying together.

Following a series of challenging selection processes, eight junior astronauts, each with one parent, will be selected to attend two overseas Space Camps located in Hunstville and Florida during the summer holidays. All expenses incurred, including the training-program fee, round-trip air-tickets, accommodation, meals and travel insurance, will be fully sponsored by MassMutual Asia.

At the overseas Space Camp, both children and their parents get a real taste of what it's like to be an astronaut, experiencing exciting astronaut-training programs.

Space Shuttle Mission

The children and their parents are assigned different missions in space, such as Commander, Pilot, Scientist and Maintenance Staff, etc. They work side-by-side and do everything together until the assigned task is completed. On the way, they encounter many difficulties and all of them are required to work as a team to complete the mission.

1/6 Moon Gravity Trainer

The Moon's gravitational pull is 1/6th that of the Earth's. There are three ways of walking on the Moon, including the Bunny Hop, Astronaut Jogging and Crab Sidewalk.

Multi-Axis Trainer

The Multi-Axis Trainer turns at different speeds and directions so that trainees can experience microgravity and the feeling of 360-degree inverted orientation.

Manned Maneuvering Unit

The Manned Maneuvering Unit simulates the environment of performing missions outside the space shuttle in orbit.

Rocket Launch

Apart from learning the principles of rocket science, children partner with their parents in making a model rocket and, most importantly, they both share the excitement and fun of seeing their rocket launched!

Space Lecture

Children acquire advanced space knowledge through a series of games, group discussions and science experiments!
