Space Camp Summer 2021

As summer 2021 winds down, it brings reflection of how far Space Camp programs have come since the 2020 season, and how far they still have yet to go to get back to pre-pandemic levels. Space Camp programs returned in summer 2021 after weathering the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic that began in spring 2020. Week-long Space Camp, Aviation Challenge, and U.S. Cyber Camp programs started again in May 2021.

Trainees from across the United States attended programs this summer and were excited to take part in the immersive STEM activities that camp provides. Camps were run at a reduced 50% capacity to allow for social distancing and rotation between activities. A stark difference to the nearly sold out summer of 2019 prior to the pandemic.

As Space Camp works to return to a more regular capacity in future summers, the dedication of the staff to bring quality programming and a unique STEM experience to trainees stands out. Recently, the Space Camp Explorers Club had the opportunity to talk with Crew Trainers from summer 2021 to hear more about their role in guiding trainees.
