Blast Off to Summer Space Camp

If the crafts, campfires and sing-a-longs at summer camps are getting a bit predictable, why not blast off on an intergalactic mission instead? You can live out your astronaut ambitions or take the universe by storm on this vacation of a lifetime - space camp!

Houston, We Have A Space Camp

Spend a weekend, or a few weeks, exploring the galaxy through space mission simulators, 3-D Imax movies and more. Depending on which camp you go to, you can build rockets, defy gravity or take part in crazy training exercises. You'll definitely have tons of stuff to brag about to your friends in September!

What To Tell Your 'Rents

Space camp is really cool but it's also totally educational, so don't forget to tell mom and dad just how much you're going to learn! This might help them swallow the hefty price tag - anywhere from $399-$1299 - depending on the camp, your age and how long you want to go for. Also, keep in mind that most space camps require you to be at least nine years old to go.

One Giant Leap For Summer Vacation

If you're ready to blast off, there are tons of camps around the world, so there's bound to be one near you! To check out NASA's very own space camp and links to other camps, head to www.spacecamps.com.

These toys reflect that idea.Yes, but new feminists are being born each day. See, I hate pink, beauty, and I cringe at the name "Shopping". I know others don't, but most do. Speaking of which, I was on ROBLOX today when someone said "Girls are noobs".  I was extremely offended by this. I know this got off topic, but still. Girls shouldn't be influenced by toys and gender roles.

Companies create products targeted towards a specific audience.     Toys specifically targeted towards girls are pink and frilly or about professions mostly girls have aren't that way because it's sexist, they're that way because girls generally like the colour pink, pretending to cook (because cooking is really fun), and enjoy taking care of their stuffed animals or baby dolls as if they were actual living things. (These things also teach them skill sets that will be helpful to them in the future, such as how to raise a child if you have any and how to cook so you don't starve to death.)      Toys specifically targeted towards boys are blue or green and/or related to guns and cars and gross bugs/animals because that's what guys are generally into. (And I haven't heard of any science kits targeted specifically towards boys..? Every science kit advert I've seen has had both males and females in it, and I've seen a rather nice amount of them.) That's just the way we are. Nothing will change that. I don't think toys [and other things] should be specifically gendered. Anyone can do and play with anything. Just because it's targeted towards girls or because girls generally have this job more than boys do, doesn't mean a boy can't play with that toy or have that job and vice versa. A product being for this one gender shouldn't stop people of the other gender from buying it. This probably wasn't as coherent as I'd like for it to be, but today's science lesson completely fried my brain, and I don't think I can properly do anything except breathe for the next few hours.
