For those who have not hear about this. Space Camp is in serious danger of closing in September and not reopening. As it is week long prgrograms will end after August. The plan is to reopen in these programs in the spring. However Space Camp announced today it has a budget shortfall of 1.5 million dollars and it needs to raise these funds by the end of October to be able to reopen in the spring. This is actually connected to both the Space and Rocket Center and Space Program. Without the needed money both could close. I know the alumni here do not want to see that happen. Please donate. Please share this. The title of this post is not an exaggeration. We are on the verge of losing a program that has affected the lives of nearly a million trainees over the last 38 years. We can not let that happen. Please donate here. https://charity.gofundme.com/o/en/campa ... espacecamp

Boeing just donated $500,000! The current fundraising progress is at just over $1.1 million in three days. There is still a ways to go, but it is promising that their goal will be met in time. There have also been some humorous Space Camp movie references in the donations, like 'Hideo Takamini' and 'Well actually it's pronounced Kevin Donaldson' as donors. :lol:
