  • Original Theatrical Trailer


This is an eerily prescient family adventure starring Kate Capshaw as Andie, a frustrated NASA astronaut who's never actually been into outer space. Her husband, flight controller Zach (Tom Skerritt), is sympathetic, but he can't influence her place in the rotation. Andie is assigned to train a group of intelligent high school students at the summer science camp called Space Camp, which is run by NASA and supervised by her husband. There she meets her campers: Kevin (Tate Donovan), a blasé, horny teenager; Tish (Kelly Preston), an airhead with a photographic memory; Kathryn (Lea Thompson), an arrogant pilot; obnoxious youngster Max (Joaquin Phoenix, then billed under the first name Leaf); and scientist-in-training Rudy (Larry B. Scott). While testing the solid booster rockets aboard a real shuttle, the team is blasted into space accidentally. Without enough air, the discordant team pulls together, each discovering hidden talents. The Challenger space shuttle disaster in January 1986 was bizarrely similar to the events depicted in Spacecamp, with far more horrific results. Its release date pushed back several months because of the tragedy, the film was still a painful reminder to the public of the national calamity, and it consequently grossed only about ten million dollars at the box office. ~ Karl Williams, Rovi

    I bought this movie to replace my old VHS of this movie. Now I finally have replaced all my movies with DVDs, Blu Rays, or 4K movies. If you are looking for a classic 80s style movie that is can be watched as a family that’s not a cartoon, this would be a great addition to your collection.

    Kids Should Enjoy It


    'Space Camp' is another one of those movies I really enjoyed as a child, but now, as an adult, I don't as much. I guess that's why this film targeted a younger audience. Enhanced widescreen.

    Underrated classic with many big names. Took too long to get it on Blu-ray.

    More appealing to the younger audience. Does not keep me interested for long.
