"Space Camp changed my life. I have become an astronautical engineer and have seen four of my satellites fly in space, including two around the moon, and one to Mars." – 2013 Space Camp alumni survey

Experience the Adventure of a Lifetime this Summer!

Home to Space Camp® and Aviation Challenge® Camp, the U.S. Space & Rocket Center® (USSRC) is recognized as one of the most comprehensive U.S. manned spaceflight hardware museums in the world. The USSRC is an official Visitor Information Center for NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center and is a member of the Smithsonian Affiliates Program.

The Space Camp programs have more than 700,000 alumni, including five female astronauts. Space Camp attendees get to interact one on one with astronauts during their visit, and are given the opportunity to have lunch with one as well! Some notable graduates of Space Camp include Elon Musk, actor Charlize Theron and astronaut Samantha Christoforetti of the International Space Station.

We not only believe that certain science/technology themed extracurricular activities encourage the study of math, science and technology...we KNOW that it does. Surveys of past Space Camp attendees report that:

  • After attending Space Camp, 88% of graduates planned to take more STEM classes
  • 71% are now in a career field related to aerospace, technology, energy, defense or biotechnology
  • 66% of those said their camp experience inspired this decision
