HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) — Space Camp is resuming at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville after shutting down because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Officials say a scaled-back version of the popular program will resume Sunday as students arrive for a week of hands-on lessons and activities related to space travel.
Fewer campers than normal will be present. And workers have adjusted some of the activities to reduce the chance of spreading the virus that causes COVID-19.
The state-owned space museum that operates Space Camp also has reopened with limited attendance rules, physical distancing and additional cleaning procedures.
