PUBLIC MISSIONS & PROGRAMS
Working with Heartland Community College's Community Education, the CLC provides many opportunities for individual children and adults to participate in a mission or program. Programs vary throughout the year. Click here to learn more about our upcoming programs, or download the flyer:
Group missions are also available. Group missions provide a fun and relaxed opportunity for participants to complete a simulated space mission. Group missions are great for social gatherings, family reunions, birthday parties, etc. Missions can accommodate between 16-30 people, ages 10 and up and may be scheduled for weekdays, weeknights, or weekends, depending on CLC staff availability. Cost for a group mission is $25/person for 16-24 people and $20/person for 25-30 people.
