Summer Camp *In* the Stars, Not Under Them

June 17, 2008

Space CampMost summer camps offer lakes and dirt and hotdogs. If that interests you not at all, then consider Space Camp, located at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama, where you can play with rockets and null-gravity and food in pouches.

Space Camp is offered for little kids, but it also has programs for teenagers and adults. And while mission control won’t actually shoot you off through the atmosphere, the crew will train you on the kinds of machines/rides that astronauts use, and you can learn all about Engineering, Space Technology, or Aerospace Science. Depending on your area of focus, you might even get to scubadive. Who needs Fiji when you have Huntsville? 

Just like regular camps, Space Camp needs counselors and other workers to make the place run smoothly, so if you’re over the age of 20 and have some college units under your belt, or if you’re almost finished with student life, start planning ahead for next summer or post-graduation.
