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...

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...
