Drawing international fame, Space Camp continues to be one of the most popular reasons many visitors travel to Huntsville, Alabama for the first time. That comes as no surprise given our storied past with America’s space program. Space Camp has been the launchpad for many careers in aerospace and science, from astronauts to engineers.
Space Camp is an anchor at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center and was designed to inspire and motivate youth to push the boundaries of human exploration just as generations before them did. Space Camp is internationally popular, with visitors from all 50 states and more than 60 foreign countries.
Most campers come in the summer for the week-long programs available for 4th grade through high school students. However, there are additional camps available for:
- Corporate Groups
- Visitors with visual and hearing impairments or other special needs
Whichever direction you choose, accommodations and meals are included with the camps, and these are certainly one of the most unique ways to experience a taste of Rocket City, USA.
