As a supporter of our community, we feel it is important to let you know about the current situation at Space Camp.
The COVID-19 pandemic has financially devastated the U.S. Space & Rocket. Weeks of complete public closure were followed by a partial opening that has seen 40 percent of typical museum attendance and 20 percent of Space Camp attendance. The fall/winter camp season will be nonexistent given pandemic-induced travel restrictions for international students and cancelled trips for American schools. Ninety percent of annual revenues are from museum and Space Camp attendance.
To attempt to offset the losses, the Rocket Center has slashed expenses wherever possible, including cutting hundreds of jobs. However, even a 90 percent reduction in force and other cost-savings measures have been insufficient to balance expenses.
To date, the Rocket Center/Space Camp does not qualify for federal, state or local emergency assistance. We continue to seek funding, but time is short to make a difference for Space Camp.
Raising a minimum of $1.5 million between now and October will enable Space Camp to open for the 2021 summer season.
The countdown clock is running but the Space Camp we know won't be able to launch without you.
You can help us Save Space Camp. The Save Space Camp campaign is accepting donations at SaveSpaceCamp.com beginning Tuesday, July 28. Your financial assistance is one very important way to help. Sharing our message is another.
Please show your support on your own social media platforms and by posting the campaign website so that others who believe in the future of exploration can also help. Just like Space Camp, we can-do when “we” includes “you.” Thank you for your continuing support of Space Camp.https://charity.gofundme.com/o/en/campaign/savespacecamp
