With the advancements of space exploration, the creators of the Intergalactic Space Camp, have set out to cultivate some of the most brilliant young minds throughout the known galaxies. However, after several years of declining enrollees, the director, Dr. Lazarus Quin, has decided to change up the rules.

All those who want to attend are welcome.

Now, the Camp is thriving. Instead of rigorous academic learning, kids and teens are learning team building exercises, playing games and as a special bonus, experiencing their first solo team mission.

Their once-in-a-lifetime experiences, will stay with these space camp cadets forever.


Who is Doctor Lazrus Quin?


There is not much known about the good doctor. No one knows his age, either. What we do know is that he appears to be about forty-five-ish years old. He has two PhDs. One is in Astrophysics and the other is in Child Psychology. He is also a renowned linguist, knowing over seventy of Earth’s languages and another thirty intergalactic planetary languages.

At some point after the kids and teens have arrived, they will meet him. The first observation is his size, then his soft-spoken authority and his unusual colored eyes.

Most believe he is human, but no one will come out and ask.
