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.
