Space Camp

Located at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center at NASA’s Marshall Flight Center, in Huntsville, Alabama, the Space Camp campus boasts the country’s only full rocket and shuttle display. The camp’s educational programs inspire students to pursue careers in the science, technology, engineering and math fields.
