Space Camp has been on a mission for 38 years to educate and inspire students from all over the world about space and science — now the organization needs full mission support.
Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, Space Camp has seen a dramatic reduction in attendance at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center museum and Space Camp in Huntsville, Alabama. This had lead to a significant decrease in revenue and operating capital.
Space Camp was reopened this summer after a four months closure, but at a greatly reduced number. With limited admission from international students and school groups this fall and winter, Space Camp is forced to close their weeklong camp programs again until April 2021. These ongoing challenges have meant a devastating loss of two-thirds of the organization’s revenue.
At this time, Space Camp has exhausted all funding possibilities — without support, the U.S Space & Rocket Center and Space Camp will have to close in October. However, the organization firmly believes that failure is not an option — Space Camp is in dire need the support of fellow science enthusiasts, Space Camp alumni and anyone who believes in the spirit of exploration to help all systems return to go.
Help Space Camp raise $1.5 million. This will support the operations through the winter and allow the organization time to plan for a future filled with Space Camp and scientific discovery. Space Camp must be saved, and together, that mission can be accomplished.
