Re: Anomalies on Adult camp missions, realistic or silly?

Robotics is incredibly fun, just saying... Eight hours in one week wasn't enough! Remember, missions require extra counsellors and sims (versus a movie or rocketry), so the additional expenses go up quickly. Plus, I think private groups are more expensive overall. Have fun looking into it. You may w...

Re: Anomalies on Adult camp missions, realistic or silly?

Form my experience as part of a corporate team, let me add that it is more complicated to organize than it seems. One person has to be the team lead, and is the only person allowed to speak with camp about arrangements, scheduling, activities, etc. before camp and generally the only person allowed t...

Re: Team Patches Frame

There is a pretty big collection of team patches from educator and SCIVIS groups in the education building. I was in the Space Camp offices there recently and saw a wall full of them... So it does exist in some way, though not publicly. This could have been a collection put together by a few counsel...

Re: 2017

Surprise! Through a series of truly fantastic events, I was able to join my usual team at Space Camp this week. My attendance was a surprise to all but two people on the team. Despite a few hiccups here and there, it was a WONDERFUL week! The robotics department really outdid themselves, the docent ...

Re: Callsigns??

As others have said, call sign assignments at Space Camp aren't common, and usually just nicknames more than call signs. I must have stood out from the crowd enough to be granted a nickname that stuck through two camps, ten months apart. The sims counsellor that gave me the nickname was my team coun...

Re: Last mission for Atlantis

I know a certain someone on my adult team back in 2004 that would probably go all google eyed at the prospect of owning an old shuttle sim. Then again, he has probably crafted himself an exact replica by now... Someone will have to get an update from him next time he's at camp. PK - you know Sims, r...

Re: SpaceCamp (Finally) Coming to Blu-Ray!

Thanks for the review on the home page. The frame comparisons are very revealing; the blu-ray is higher quality than I expected it to be. It's also nice to see that the second version is oddly colour saturated for everyone else too. [s]I'll add a copy to my (American) Amazon order in October.[/s] (M...

Anyone here watched it yet? It is on Netflix and Apple iTunes, and probably some other video hosting/streaming sites as well. I am about half-way through and enjoying it immensely.

Re: AC Mach III First Timer

The camp packing list (I found it today) says that AC participants will be issued a BDU jacket to wear for the duration of camp. They also list two pairs of long pants or trousers (they recommend khakis). Now, I'm not sure I agree with the khakis statement since those are typically considered fairly...

Welcome to Hab1! One of the greatest lessons in life is: come as you are and be yourself; and be proud of it - and that applies to Space Camp and AC too!

Anyone else tune in for the big announcement yesterday? I had to take an urgent phone call in the middle of it, so I didn't catch all of the details.

90% totality selfie! It was noticeably darker and cooler outside. The sky looked like you were wearing dark sunglasses. The pinhole camera worked just as ti should and was super fun to use. https://scontent-sea1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/20992913_10155354895061418_3049767067658217540_n.jpg?oh=b61016f8...

Re: 2018

If you did the week-long camp as a kid I think you could be disappointed with the abbreviated weekend Adult SA camp, as it won't include everything you may expect, since it's less than half the length. If you can make it work, I'd definitely recommend the week-long Adult ASA camp.
