Bring payment to SpacePort on the day of your visit; this allows you to adjust the payment to account for absences. SpacePort accepts cheques, cash, VISA, or Mastercard for payment of educational programs. Additionally, there is an ATM machine located in SpacePort for your added convenience.
Dairy Queen Cones
Our longtime partners at Dairy Queen can offer your class the perfect treat to cap off your SpacePort experience. We are proud to continue offering a reduced price of $1.25 per cone courtesty of Dairy Queen. Dairy Queen is located in the food court immediately outside of SpacePort.
Timing is everything
We take pride in the flexibility of our programs; this includes arranging start and end times that best suit your needs. Some teachers want to make sure that their class has ample time to explore our exhibits, while others have tight schedules that require us to abbreviate stageshows and workshops. We want to work with you to make sure that SpacePort is delivering exactly the right kind of program for your class.
SpacePort’s location beside the Airport Food Court makes lunchtime easy. Even if kids have brought their own lunches from home (as is usually the case), your class is welcome to eat at the Destinations Food Court tables, located right outside the SpacePort facility.
Advice on Getting the Time and Date You Want
We recommend booking as early as possible, as dates fill up quickly with priority given to groups that have booked earliest. Especially after holiday break, SpacePort usually hosts two or more schools per day. Booking your class into SpacePort early in the year remains the best way to ensure that you get your preferred date and start time.
Special Needs Learners at SpacePort
SpacePort has ample experience in delivering worthwhile programs to special needs classes. The success of such field trips, of course, depends on open dialogue with you, the teachers. When we communicate openly about the interests, abilities, and special needs of your class, we can make your field trip perfect.
Out of Town and Charter Schools at SpacePort
SpacePort loves to host visitors from out of town schools. School groups from as far away as Gleichen, Leduc, Red Deer, Lloydminster and Edmonton have experienced our educational programs. Many of these groups have become annual vistors. We were honoured when a group from Wachik, Saskatchewan drove to Calgary specifically to visit SpacePort. Our ability to be flexible in our scheduling and adapt our program to your needs makes these long trips well worthwhile.
