We might as well just jump right on into this one because you’re going to want ALL the details. Drumroll please, space camp for adults exists and you can totally go and learn a bunch of cool stuff about space! We won’t waste a second longer, let’s get started!
So if you’ve always wanted to be an astronaut or even just attend space camp, but never have, and then realized it was probably too late and you’re too old, well, it’s not too late and you’re not too old. (At least for space camp!) This camp, located in Huntsville, Alabama, is for adults ages 18 and up and the three-day academy includes accommodations for both Friday and Saturday nights, as well as all meals starting Friday night and ending Sunday morning.

Campers will pack a lot of activities in just a couple of days including training on the multi-axis trainer, constructing and launching your own model rocket, partaking in teambuilding exercises on the ropes course, designing a protective heat-shield, and participating in a simulated space mission. Your camp experience concludes on Sunday following your graduation, you will then get to explore the Rocket Center at your own pace. Book your stay here!
If you love your space camp academy experience, then you may be interested in booking future stays! The following are all of the adult space camp options available:
Adult Space Camp
Adult Space Camp is a great option for those that are more interested in the history as well as the future of space exploration. This camp is a little less hands-on than the adult space academy we’ve been going on about.
Adult Advanced Space Academy
The advanced space academy (smarty pants) is a six-day, five-night adventure with a ton of hands-on, interactive space missions and activities to keep you busy.
Space Academy for Educators
If you’re an educator, you will greatly appreciate this curriculum-based six-day, five-night stay where you will gain access to NASA-inspired lesson plans that are correlated to the National Science Education Standards.
