Re: SpaceCamp Anniversary

I was one of the few that hadn't heard of the SpaceCamp movie until I went to camp, actually. I heard about US Space Camp from a local science centre advertising Space Camp Spatiale Canada -- but I was too old to attend there and they directed me to Huntsville. I worked hard to save money over two y...

SpaceCamp Anniversary

Yesterday was the 32nd anniversary of SpaceCamp's debut in cinema. How did you celebrate the occasion? I watched the movie whilst riding my bike (affixed to a stationary trainer). I recently gifted a copy of SpaceCamp and Space Warriors to a young girl (age 10) I know who loves space and she much pr...

Re: Space Camp makes the Science Channel

I checked a few times and never saw the rest of Sims' blog posts. If someone here has them, could they please add links? I will try to email Sims when I get home.

Also, Benji... where's your camp report??? How was family camp?

Re: Astronaut Wings: new order!

Everyone should have received either an email or private message from me regarding their patches. I sent you photos, along with pricing and questions about Velcro and shipping addresses. Please respond promptly. Those who respond first get their patches shipped first. :D

Re: Astronaut Wings: new order!

Good to know about the other company that makes them. The order I placed just went into production today, so they should be ready soon. I've heard the same story from Hoot. I asked him a question about the name tags back in 2007 and why some astronauts were different than others -- and what the civi...

Re: Astronaut Wings: new order!

Last call!! We need our more patches to make the order. I'm hoping to place the order on Tuesday. I messaged a bunch of people who asked about them over the past two years. Check your inboxes.

Astronaut Wings: new order!

Several people here have asked me to make astronaut wings over the years. Unfortunately, I couldn't make them at the time or now don't have any more blanks. However, the company I used to make the originals has sent me a quote to make another batch. How many people are interested, and how many would...

Re: Smell

My smell memory from camp is less pleasant: rotting chocolate milk in one of the overhead air ducts in our Hab room. The first night the counsellors didn't believe us and kept telling us to go to bed, which we eventually did. The second night it was wafting into the halls and stank up a good portion...

Great video. I enjoyed watching it. YouTube has English subtitles, so the anglophones can understand what you're saying.

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...
