Space Camp 40th Anniversary Celebration

Friday, June 17, 2022 | 6:00 pm

Presented by the U.S. Space & Rocket Center

Join us in celebrating the 40th anniversary of Space Camp. Space Camp has been inspiring trainees since 1982, and has been a gateway for the future's astronauts, scientists, and engineers.

Celebrate 40 years of inspiration and the induction of the next class of Space Camp Hall of Fame members. These alumni have made significant contributions in their fields and we look forward to honoring them.

 

Space Camp opened on June 13, 1982, launching what is now an internationally-recognized STEM camp with more than one million alumni from all 50 states and 150 international locations. The dinner program will feature outstanding alumni and a fireside chat with members of the Inspiration4 team, the first all-civilian space flight, led by Jared Isaacman, a 1995 Aviation Challenge graduate. Jeffrey Kluger, Editor at Large for TIME magazine, will moderate the discussion.

Camp programs continue to be a gateway for explorers on the frontiers of STEM, and as part of the anniversary celebration, a Space Camp Hall of Fame ceremony will feature these outstanding alumni, former camp staff and friends of Space Camp:
