The Goldbergs

What Space Camp forum would be complete without a place to talk about one of the best/worst movies of all time, SpaceCamp, as well as all Space Camp references in pop culture.

Anyone else watching tonight's episode, I.e., Adam is trying to get his dad to send him to Space Camp (after seeing the movie). :)

Makes sense as that was a HUGE thing in popular culture in the 80s. I remember plenty of kids I was in school with who all dreamed of getting to go. None of them did, of course.

The movie somewhat inspired me to go to camp. I remember seeing it in theaters in 86. Was already a huge space buff but didn't realise the camp was a real place and even if it was the kids in the movie were a lot older than I was. I found out about 3 years later when looking for a flight suit after seeing a little kids one for sale and they recommended I call space camp and see about getting one. They gave me the number and the rest is history.

We didn't have a lot of money when I was in my teens when SC was going strong. I was 16 when the movie came out.
I also was raised by some pretty overprotective parents, too. The idea of me going to SC by myself? That was such an alien concept I never bothered to even ask.
And yes, a few years ago I confirmed they never would have said okay even if I had asked.

I was married with 2 kids by the time the movie came out. I had no idea about adult Space Camp until I received a trip as an MBA graduation present.

Last night, Adam wore a SpaceCamp sweatshirt throughout the episode.

Did it have the old logo with "US" at the front?
