Back after a long break...

Postby shenandoah04 » Sat Apr 21, 2007 10:01 pm

It's been awhile since I've been on here.
Just wondering, has anyone else had a Space Camp Reunion? Every year for oh, the past 4 or 5 years my group has thought about it but it's never followed through- any success stories?

I've never had a reunion. In fact, I've only met back up with two former teammates outside of camp.

Welcome back! Yeah, it is nice to be around here, but of course it's made me really nostalgic...

Same here. Immediatly after Camp was over I wondered if we would ever have reunions.

For years, it has been pretty much left up to the Campers to keep in touch with each other in the months and years after attending. There has never been any kind of alumni association or post-Camp organization for keeping tabs on everybody and setting these kinds of events up. There is hope now with what Alumni Andi is doing, for this to change for us. Maybe eventually Campers will have the opportunity to attend a weekend "reunion camp" session every 5 or 10 years. I think it would be a great way to keep former trainees involved and keep them coming back!

There is always the adult 8-day alumni camp, if it is still offered. It would make a great alumni reunion week for anyone interested in attending.

Yes, of course! Sign up if you can! I wish I could go but I will live vicariously through those of you who do.

The 8-day camp would be great for 2008 and beyond. (I do not see the 8-day camp on the schedule for this year at all, so either they discontinued it, didn't post it online, or it is full. Hmm...)

i plan on attending an adult camp eventually. i'd love to do it this summer, but its just not economically feasable for me right now. i'd really like to come back and be a counciler too, but that would require relocating to Huntsville. oh well, perhaps one day, who knows?
