The Ultimate Out of this World Staycation

How much time does it take to prepare your family for a “quick” weekend getaway? Hours? Days? A week or more? Finding something everyone in the family is excited about is hard enough, and then you’ve got to do the research, book the hotel, plan the meals … the list goes on. And that is, of course, long before you hit the road for hours in the car with your children.

“ARE WE THERE YET?” (Oh my.)

Most of us have lived this scenario many times.

What if it didn’t have to be that way? What if your family could enjoy an out-of-this-world, all-inclusive weekend adventure and you didn’t even have to leave Huntsville? Family Space Camp at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center offers the perfect solution … the ULTIMATE weekend adventure staycation!

Family Space Camp is a weekend journey for families with children as young as seven who dream of exploration. Your family will train together like astronauts using authentic simulators modeled after NASA’s astronaut training program. It’s a super-fun weekend full of adventure and a simulated mission to space for your family.

Have Fun. Save Money.

Not too many years ago we here at Rocket City Mom got the chance to experience a Family Weekend camp and can honestly say everyone, even mom, had a blast. Sounds great, right? It gets better. There is a big sale coming up on Black Friday Weekend! It’s the only public sale all year on this program.

Programs begin on Friday afternoon and end Sunday afternoon. Lodging and meals are onsite in our Space Camp facilities and are included in the price. This perfect adventure package simplifies everything your family needs for an enjoyable weekend all for one price. Best of all, there’s no road trip required.

If you live or work in Huntsville, you likely drive by the mighty Saturn V moon rocket daily but may not have considered the incredible adventures that await your family just behind the iconic red tower Space Camp gate. Your family can make memories of a lifetime and remember them fondly each time you pass the beautiful rocket.
