While touring the U.S. Space & Rocket Center in 1977, Dr. Wernher Von Braun commented, “You know, we have all these camps for youngsters in this country - band camps and cheerleader camps and football camps. Why don’t we have a science camp?” So they built one, and this year – 2017 – that “science camp” turns 35 years old!
Space Camp SummerFest 2017 is all about celebrating Dr. von Braun’s vision for Space Camp!
