Didn't even think abouyt looking into airline discounts, but I'm only flying one-way, going to rent a car and do an epic cross-country sightseeing trip on the way back to the Pacific Northwest, my wife is coming down the day after I'm done with camp. So working on a discount for a 1-way trip probabl...

I'm going to throw this out here. Remember, rules exist because at some point someone has broken it! :? Not only do the security guards not let you back on campus if you are intoxicated, they will also not let you back on carrying alcohol. Yes, we had problems with this in the very near past. 8O I’...

Section for SC collectibles?

I got to wondering why this forum doesn’t have a section on collecting Space Camp items, especially from the past? I’ve stumbled across a few items from the strangest places recently (including more than a couple of flight suits) and started wondering about when certain things changed or got added-d...

I swear I've read somewhere that the hotel nearby does have a camp discount, but I'll be darned if I can recall where I saw that. I'd say just call and check with the Marriott, which is right next to the camp grounds.

When are you going to camp?

I collect military uniforms as my primary hobby and being former military as well as volunteering to crew WW2 airplanes in the past, I have a LOT of nameplates, and could easily wear a different one each day I'm at camp. As a purely money-making thing, you have to wnder why they offer this wing, as ...

I think the planes will add to the story of the shuttle but I do agree they should be on the edge of the ring of the shuttle park agree. Many people don’t seem to understand how close NASA and the astronaut corps has been to the T-38 for a very long time now. Growing up in Tallahassee, Florida, I s...

Interesting camp wing nameplate spotted....

I recently noticed this photo on the collect space site by accident: http://www.collectspace.com/review/ffrench/spacecamphof01.jpg Clearly, that's a hall of fame awardee jacket, but why isn't that nameplate offered as an option for campers? I love the design and would love to have one just like it (...

Timing can be crazy sometimes. I’d almost forgotten that when the news came out that Space Camp had first opened, I was in junior high and I asked my Mom to put some NASA patches onto a shirt I had to make it ‘sort of’ look like the suits I saw campers wearing on the news. I had a NASA ‘meatball’ an...

Do they even give out wings anymore? I found a set at an antique show recently, it had a red shield in the center with “US Space Camp” written on it. I assume these are the wings people are talking about, but do they still give them out and if so, do they still have this design?

Re: Nice place you guys have here.

I heard about this place from a collectSPACE forum post on Space Camp obviously. I honestly had no idea this place existed. I'm the one who posted that over there. I too recently found out this was here in anticipation of my first visit ever (wanted to go badly when I was a teen but it wasn't going...

Phil Reeder from the UK wrote me not long ago, looking for adults to commit to a 8-day camp either this year or 2013. I’ll send him the link to this thread as he might not know about it. I don’t think I can commit to something that long of with that kind of cost, but maybe that’ll change after I go ...

Tornadoes in the area of Huntsville?

On the radio this morning, they talked about a line of weather that stretched from Northern Alabama to Virginia. Looks like it rolled through Huntsville and more storms are predicted to threaten there and into Chattanooga. Let’s hope that the Space Center will be spared (not to mention relatives of ...

What’s up with all the duct tape references in this forum? In the Army, we never went anywhere without a OD green or camouflage version called, “Hundred Mile an Hour” tape, but for the life of me I can’t think of any practical use for it at Space Camp. I understand that taping people to chairs is a ...

They either do a great job of hiding it, assume you have no questions, or I’m over thinking everything (either of which is likely, I guess). If you go to http://www.spacecamp.com and go to 'resources', you'll see an option for Trainee Guides. I'm not sure what questions you have, but probably most ...

Thanks for the info. I’m signed up for the Adult camp in September, which should make for interesting times (much more potential for snoring and people less adaptable to a communal lifestyle than kids are, I bet). But I’m sure that much like my Army days, the hab will be a place to ‘rack out’ and st...
