Summer vacation movies: ”SpaceCamp”

WHAT IT’S ABOUT A group of smart-ass kids in a special science program are chosen to sit in an actual shuttle. Unlucky for them (but lucky for us!), the ship blasts into space and they have to maneuver it back.

WHY WE LOVE IT Even though the premise is ridiculous, this adventure made real space camps (including one at Kennedy Space Center) into a choice summer destination for years to come.

FUN FACT It starred Lea Thompson, Kelly Preston, and was the film debut of Joaquin Phoenix (then known as Leaf).
