Re: 2018

So true! When we were there in October 2017 Hab1 was FULL!! As in, every single room was occupied, including some not ordinarily used. Granted, it was with assorted families, so the rooms were not at capacity due to gender restrictions, but still - even in the off season they are getting very large ...

Re: 2018

Ugh, my reply was deleted again (twice). The short version: There used to be alumni camps for youth and adults, much like the elite programme. They built on skills, had longer and more detailed missions, and some unique lectures. They made a great template for more complex corporate or adult camps, ...

Re: Space Camp Benefits!

My parents sent me off to another country! It took much pleading for them to let me attend. I'm forever grateful they put trust in me to fly there alone.

Re: Space Camp Benefits!

I think Hotdog summarised it well. As a former Space Camp Scholarship recipient, I applaud you for undertaking the task. Even if you don't get the scholarship, the process of applying is very educational and rewarding in itself. I hope your efforts will result in a full or partial scholarship to att...

Re: 2018

I had a comment identical to majtom7 but HabForum is doing funny things only phone and wouldn't let me post it. It's a HUGE commitment for someone to lead a private group and handle not just the money, but all the correspondence with camp, health and travel forms, creating the programme, and being t...

Re: 2018

I'm happy to hear Spence was on your team. By the photos, I though Steve was on the team as well, but happy he was there as a guest. Wow, the super short missions sound sad. There used to be a 6-hour shuttle mission for ASA, but that was before Mars missions came into effect; they've since reduced t...

Re: "First Man" movie, who's going to see it the opening weekend?

Quoting the USSRC Facebook feed: Seeing First Man in the theater this weekend? Listen closely. The sounds of switches and clicks in the Apollo Command Module were recorded on-location at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama. Below is a photo of Neil Armstorng, Buzz Aldrin, and M...

Re: IMAX :-(

Oh, some of my fondest camp memories and silly inside jokes happened in that theatre. OREOs and IMAX will make me giggle for years to come. As it will be sad to see IMAX depart (bye bye Canadian technology), I think a planetarium will be a great addition, as I always wondered why there wasn't one in...

Re: "First Man" movie, who's going to see it the opening weekend?

I am excited to see it, but will wait for Blu-ray. The previews make it look pretty intense and I am prone to sensory overload, so watching it in cinema might be too much.

Re: Adult Camp Accomodations

Are the Hab room doors steel or something else? The older style doors in Hab1 are plastic. The one on our room last year was wood. I'm not sure what material the newest set of doors are made of, since they renovated the doors after we were there last. Might be a good question for Vincent, Benji, St...

Re: 2018

How's the camp planning coming along, Lee (P51)? Are you registered yet? I still only see the 3-day camp dates, no week-long programmes are listed on the main adult page, but there's a week-long programme on 04 November for US$1349 that is open. Too bad there's no way to know about it unless you kno...

Re: 2018

LEGO Mindstorms robotics are used in the robot price lab. The challenge tables are designed for rover missions. The only issue with robotics is that they take several hours for building and programming them. I don't see how they could include it in a weekend camp, but it would be a nice addition to ...

I say put an adult dorm where the Saturn V was. ;) von Braun's Happy Bottom Riding Club LOL Best suggestion, ever! Too bad their recent funding went to the robotics and new security/coding camps. Even portable (trailer) dorms would be nice - and more economical. The walk is closer to 15 minutes, yo...

Re: Adult Camp Accomodations

majtom7 - You were away for our team debrief session last year. I'm not sure how much I can or should make public, but there were comments made about the Hab being overly crowded (both Hab1 and 2 were FULL), and adults wanting more space and privacy. Corporate and adult camps may be housed in the Ma...
