Space Camp® launched in 1982 to inspire and motivate young people from around the country to join the ranks of space pioneers who persevere to push the boundaries of human exploration. Today, with attendees from all 50 states, territories and more than 60 foreign countries, the immersive program continues to challenge young people to dream of a future in space. With the U.S. Space & Rocket Center® as home base, trainees have an unparalleled environment to spur imagination.

The Space Camp Alumni Advancement Board (AAB) represents all Space Camp®, Aviation Challenge® and Robotics Camp STEM education program alumni. The AAB serves to harness the knowledge, abilities, and resources of camp program trainee and staff alumni for the advancement of programs, projects, and initiatives benefiting Space Camp, Aviation Challenge, and the U.S. Space & Rocket Center as a whole, while also inspiring both current and future alumni to action.
