That's an interesting question. I wonder if they even track those kinds of stats for all camps, not just adult.
p51 wrote:But I wouldn't imagine that's SC's target market for the adults who show up.
That's another interesting question. What, if any, is their targeted adult audience?
LOL These are some things to ask the next time I'm in a meeting with Dr. Barnhart, if and when that ever happens again.

Re: 2019?

I am going to go on a wee bit of a rant here. The adult camp page talks about learning what it takes to be an astronaut. Yet can you really do that in a one hour mission? That's barely enough time for a launch and landing, much less on orbit operations. The last time I participated in a one hour shu...

Re: 2019?

I asked about this on Space Camp's Facebook page and was told that there are 2 1 hour missions during a weekend camp. OK, so why does the bottom of this page mention EDM?

Re: 2019?

USSRC posted on Facebook about openings for the Memorial Day weekend camp. I looked at that webpage and it seems to indicate that you perform 1 mission, an EDM, during the camp. (I'm guessing a 3 hour.) Does anyone know if that's correct?

Space Camp For Educators

Can anyone sign up for these? I didn't see anything saying otherwise yet I might have missed it. It generally looks like what camp used to be like with the parachute training. Just exploring my options for this year...

Re: 2019?

That sounds like such a short weekend, but packed with activities for new campers. The last morning seems a bit anticlimactic. That's because it is a short weekend. Back in the good old days LOL, weekend camp started at 8am Friday and ended 6pm Sunday. That's right, 3 full days. I've attached that ...

Re: 2019?

Email USSRC and ask for one... I've done that in the past.

P.S. I checked and the one I have is a year old. I am unable to attach it here as its pdf file extension is invalid.

Thanks, Wes for all your work on the timeline and the other articles. It makes me wonder what else slips through the cracks.

Re: Lego movie voice actors go to Space Camp

Only an alum would know what it really should mean. and there's 750,000 + of them... I know plenty of people who consider the Right Stuff Award to be sort of a joke anyway, either given to the 'cool kid' in the team or the one with a sob story. You forgot as a participation award so that every team...

Thanks, Wes! I had thought your website had gone away but Jackie D sent me the link. I enjoy reading about the meetings and getting a feel for what may be coming down the pipe. I wonder how many folks remember Mike Wing. He was a con man, for sure. Told people what they wanted to hear with no real p...

Re: Lego movie voice actors go to Space Camp

BTW, I thought handing out a Right Stuff Award just cheapened it further.

P.S. I understand that they paid a $2,500 location fee for the one day shoot so I guess that's the going rate for a Right Stuff Award.

Re: 2019?

I would like to yet given your experience with the last weeklong camp, i.e., 3 missions totaling 5 hours, I am very hesitant. Why set yourself up for frustration? Now if they want to do an Advanced schedule like I did in 1993, I might be in. (Sorry, I have that schedule in a jpg and it's too large t...

Re: Lego movie voice actors go to Space Camp

I recorded it last night and saw it this morning. They did the centrifuge, multiaxis, went up on the arm and in the sling for EVAs, piloted the shuttle, all under the watchful eye of Hoot. The usual celebrity stuff apparently, no 12 hours of research scientist in a station module doing child level e...

In a way, you are correct. One thing I forgot to mention is that right now, Space Camp attendance in the youth programs is B O O M I N G . The last two years or so, Camp programs have been booked to the max, to the point of having staff shortages during peak times. So as an administrator, if you ha...

Currently Advanced Space Academy is listed at $1199 and the Advanced Space Academy Elite is listed at $2099. That is quite the cost difference and I would like to know what the $900.00 difference gets you. LOL You can ask and they will answer you in a general way. The main differences readily appar...
