Have Lunch with an Astronaut!

Space Camp® is rocketing to the top of everyone’s wish list this summer! Check out the Astronaut Lunch speakers scheduled each week.

Families are welcome to join campers after graduation, and those participating in a weekend program may attend the lunch before beginning their program. The event begins at noon with a lunch of barbecue* with all the trimmings followed by the astronaut speaking, answering questions from the audience and posing for photos with guests. Lunches are scheduled every Friday from May 12 through August 18 and are an optional add-on to the program. Tickets are $30 per person.

*Vegetarian options are available.
