Post by p51 »

I doubt I'll be going but you just never know...
Anyone planning to go this year?

YES!! ...well, sort of. I've accepted a job in Huntsville and will be moving there soon. I expect to be at Space Camp and the Rocket Center a lot more now.

Hotdog, congrats! :D
Sadly, since I first asked the question, anyone going to Space Camp anytime in the near future (or maybe even this year or beyond if things don't get much better) had become questionable.
Let's hope we can all get to planning for our next visit to SC soon enough!

Me, too..well, sort of. We've moved to Falcon Boulevard in Cocoa, FL and are less than 12 miles from the Visitors Center.

I just read on Facebook that USSRC has cancelled all camps through 9/1.

On the Space Camp Facebook page, many parents have made posts about the various camp closures and the emails that they have received from Space Camp. The latest date I have seen for cancelled camps was through June 28th based upon posts by parents. Some of those same parents have posted that they rescheduled their child's camp to be in July. The Space Camp website still has the May 22, 2020 closure date posted.

I think it's probably a given thing, sadly, that nobody is going to be going this year...
If there was ever a place where you would likely pick up some sort of disease, other than in a laboratory or hospital, it would be in the Sims at SC.
How many of you have been told to be careful touching things in the sims, because kids have done god-knows-what with them before you?

Just checked today... No adult camps listed for 2020 or 2021. They have a webpage for a week long Adult Advanced Space Academy in 2021 yet there's nothing enticing listed other than an extended duration mission. Starts on Sunday pm, ends Friday am, so really only 4 days.

I would be willing to go to an Adult session (aging out of being allowed to be in an Elite sadly), but have no dates/prices. Now very worried that I won't be able to attend if save camp campaign fails.

Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got til it's gone

That's the way I feel about USSRC letting the motion base sims fall into disrepair.
