Re: 2019?

Hopefully, USSRC was just out of the right name tags and separate shirts because somewhere there was a breakdown. Although giving the same shirt to everyone saves money, it's different than having your own unique group shirt. When we went on our Panama Canal cruise, I was disappointed that they had...

Re: 2019?

It is hard to believe that a week ago at this time we were in Huntsville as part of Team Magellan for the 3 day Adult Space Academy. How time flies when you are there! Our team won the 'Outstanding Team' patch. Another adult team won the 'Commander's Cup' patch which was for the best missions. As pa...

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? For what it is worth, my wife and I will be attending camp n...

Re: 'Space Shuttle Mission' simulator 2007

Update: I did get it to work on a Windows 10 computer. Now I just have to work less than 65 hours a week, so I have some time to fly missions. Believe it or not, the design group still replies to emails even though the sim is 2007 era. No word on the second version that was promised in 2014, but it...

Re: 2019?

2019 is going to be a busy year at SC for my family. As mentioned previously, my wife and I will be attending Adult Space Academy. Then a few weeks later, my oldest daughter will be attending Space Academy through the Girl Scouts Destination Program. The ladies in my life were wondering what the sch...

Re: 2019?

My wife and I will be going to a 3 day Adult Space Academy in May. Due to a job change and other things going on career wise there is no way we could do it on our actual anniversary so this was as close we could get. (Which was only a couple weeks early anyways). It was a mutual gift we bought for e...

Re: Movie patch, real or replica?

I also was an active bidder on that patch. It is a great piece! thanks, I actually got a second offer on it, which leads me to believe that either they had two of them, or the person who won backed out. I have curtailed my space camp collecting, for the most part, but this was the one thing I wasn'...

Re: 2018

The initial Hoot Camp generated a lot of excitement and interest. It was a great value for its price yet there was no way that there was going to be another loss leader like that. I feel that it led to inflated expectations at USSRC regarding future adult attendance and for possible attendees regar...

Re: 2018

I agree. My feeling is that attendance is low due to the changes made to keep prices down, i.e., fewer and shorter missions plus shorter "weeklong" camps. (BTW, that's my interpretation of why sim time is down and camps are shorter.) It also maybe low because the generation raised on spac...

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!

I think both Hotdog and SpaceCanada summarized answers to all of your questions very well. I commend you for applying for a Space Camp scholarship and going through that process. Even if you do not receive the scholarship, just being involved with the process makes you learn about yourself and dig d...

Re: 2018

Has anyone noticed on the SC website, there is now an "Advanced Space Academy Elite" available? They have it listed for 15-18 year olds and is only available for Advanced Space Academy Graduates. I would love to know if there will be such a camp offered for Adults (over 18+). I would be cu...

Re: Movie patch, real or replica?

I also was an active bidder on that patch. It is a great piece! I do not even have any of the 'reproduction' movie patches so was not afraid to put a higher bid on something like that. None the less, atleast after losing out on the auction I see it went to a good home and kept some money in my pocket.

Re: Adult Camp Accomodations

I called SC and asked regarding staying at the Marriott or any discounts if I decided on doing Adult Academy and didn't want to stay in the hab. I was told for a $200 additional fee you could stay at the Marriott and not in the hab. I did use a specific date as an example which was a 3 day so I do n...

Re: SpaceCamp Anniversary

Earlier in the month I stumbled in to an article online that mentioned about the anniversary of the move. Honestly I did not know when the actual debut was, so it was pure luck seeing that article. Our family had a 'little' celebration over the last few weeks. Due to time we had to spread things out...
