Re: 2018

Sadly I'm not going to be making it to camp this year either. I did a few days at Universal Orlando in the spring and that ate up a good portion of my travel budget for the year. But I am going to the Cosmosphere in Hutinson, KS in August. I'll also be spending a lot of time on space related activit...

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

Robotics is incredibly fun, just saying... Eight hours in one week wasn't enough! I'm definitely interested in being a part of a corporate group. Late summer/early fall would work for me. August or September would be best. For activities I'm interested in: - I'd enjoy the chance to do some robotics...

Re: Patch Pioneer / May 2017 ASA

I wasn't in there for the long mission in 2015 Advanced Academy but a couple of people had to go and test a procedure in the Scuba Tank, which was a nice touch. I have mixed feelings about this. Sounds cool and more realistic yet it also automatically excludes anyone unable to SCUBA for whatever re...

Re: Patch Pioneer / May 2017 ASA

One of the things that always bugged me about the medical anomalies was that they weren't always really accurate. For example, on an EDM the first time I went to adult ASA we had a guy who was given narcolepsy and kept falling asleep. The "correct" solution to that anomaly was to give him ...

Re: Patch Pioneer / May 2017 ASA

The anomalies these days are ridiculous. It's one of the reasons I have not gone back as an adult. In the 80s and early 90s, the anomalies during the missions were reasonable and realistic. Perhaps with so many ADHD kids these days, there's a need to keep them more engaged. I don't know about the a...

Re: Callsigns??

Callsigns are definitely more a thing on the AC side of Camp. I believe every AC camper gets a callsign. I believe all counselors get a callsign early in training as well. Which may be part of the confusion as many SC counselors are known best by their callsigns. On the space side, I've been to camp...

Re: 2018

Re: 2018

In my scheduler these dates are mondays, what makes me much more confused, because the woman at the phone told me that they are don't starting at mondays. And it turns out my two sided work reference calendar is from last year, so 2016/2017 not this year 2017/2018. My bad. Sorry for any confusion. ...

Re: 2018

I sent an E-Mail to Space Camp - it's really confusing to me. 1 October and 12 November 2018 are both Saturdays, which is odd as adult week long camps have run Sunday-Friday in the past. I wonder ...

Re: 2018

Did you seen that registration for adult camps is open, now? I saw that there were two Advanced Space Academy programs, one for 1.349 $ and one for 1.199 $. It is the same date (Sept. 24). Do you know the difference between this two programs? Hmmm...that difference in price seems a bit low for the ...

Re: Hidden Figures

I didn’t get to the theaters to see it, so I’ll nab it on Netflix when they eventually have it. Other than here and the CollectSpace forum, I haven’t read much about it. I don’t think a single co-worker or local friend of mine saw it as I don’t recall overhearing anyone discussing the film. I'm sur...

I know some people here like to collect Space Camp patches. A new one (at least to me) popped up on Ebay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/311749271833?ul_noapp=true Is anyone familiar enough with the robotics program to know if this is an official patch and, if so, what it is given for? I would assume it's ...

Re: Packing for Space Camp: THE VIDEO!

It appears to be the Oregon State Seal http://www.crwflags.com/art/states/or_pseal.jpg I agree. If you look at the Bloopers video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PgeF-Vd48WM) around 36 seconds in with the resolution up as high as it will go, you get a pretty good view of the patch. It definitely s...

Re: Packing for Space Camp: THE VIDEO!

Fun little video but that's not Hab1. Is that the Aviation Challenge dorm (Hab3?). I'm guessing they did it there because they wanted to show the smallest lockers and encourage people to pack light. The two things missing from the video (and the official packing list) are a camera and a small bag or...

So my simple question: Are Accomodations included in the price of ASA? Yes. Barring construction, renovations or anything else unusual, you will be assigned a room in Hab 1. These are rooms with seven bunks (two lower, five upper), a built in table and bench and lockers. They're pretty basic and si...
