The original U.S. Space Camp is an educational camp run out of the U.S. Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama. Started in 1982, the goal of the program was to educate youngsters about the US space program, as well as simulate the experience of being an astronaut. The premise is like a baseball camp, except you learn how to fly the space shuttle. After the release of the 1986 movie SpaceCamp (see above), attendance skyrocketed at the Huntsville camp, and a second camp was built at Kennedy Space Center in Titusville, Florida (the actual home of the space shuttle program). Now 18 years old, the program has locations in California and Canada, and a number of other programs such as Space Academy and Aviation Challenge.
