No joke. We are really doing Adult Space Camp.
(please read, a lot of important details below, especially at the end)
SAVE THE DATE:
Thursday September 7th (arrival)
Sunday September 10th (departure)
Join us as we take over the United States Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville,
Alabama for 4 days and 3 nights of the most "out of this world" experience ever - SPACE CAMP.
Send your team to the stars and beyond as they learn what it takes to build and launch their own model rocket, experience state-of-the-art astronaut training simulators, and learn all the skills to complete a shuttle mission. Trainees experience all areas required to complete the mission at Mission Control or up in Space.
Training activities and team challenges include:
- Astronaut training simulators
- Space Shuttle Missions and Moon Walks
- Rocket Construction and Launch
- F-18 Flight Simulators
- Centrifuge 3.2Gs Flight Experience
- Area 51 Challenge (including ropes course, climbing wall, and zip lines)
Meals and Accommodations:
Meals and lodging are included. Lodging is on-site in the Astronaut Training Habitat facilities and meals are provided in the Space Camp Crew Galley. Campers will be separated by gender.
All classes and training take place during the day on campus. In the evenings, private charter buses will take all WAKA campers off-site to experience southern hospitality and nightlife, with themed parties and bar crawls.

Space Camp Check-out and Charter Bus back to Nashville
Space Camp doesn't officially begin until Friday afternoon at 2pm (9/8), but players are encouraged to arrive Thursday (9/7) and hang out with everyone in Nashville. Accommodations and charter bus is already included in price. You'll just have to take care of your own meal on Thursday (while in downtown). If you can't arrive Thursday, you can still arrive Friday morning, but you'll need to provide your own transportation to camp.
Nashville International Airport is the recommended airport to fly into if you arrive on Thursday (9/7). It has the most flight options, least expensive, and is only 90 minutes from camp. If you're arriving on Friday (9/8), try to fly into Huntsville Airport, which is only 15 minutes from camp. It's super close, but is generally much more expensive to fly into and has less flight options (especially if traveling from far away).
There are other airport options (including Atlanta and Birmingham), but again - you'll need to arrange your own transportation to camp. Your camp fee will already include Thursday night's stay, so try to arrive Thursday if at all possible.
Camp checkout is Sunday 9/10 at 2pm. Charter buses will be available to take campers back to Nashville, where you can head directly to airport or stay in Downtown. If you plan to spend an extra day or 2 in Nashville, you'll have to arrange your own hotel accommodations. Once the bus drops you off, you're on your own. Again, if you're going anywhere else Sunday afternoon, you'll need to arrange your own transportation.
PLEASE NOTE WE WILL KEEP TRACK OF EVERYONE'S ARRIVAL AND DEPARTURE LOCATION/ITINERARY SO YOU CAN TRAVEL TOGETHER TO SAVE ON ANY COSTS.
