A boy obsessed with 50s sci-fi movies about aliens has a recurring dream about a blueprint of some kind, which he draws for his inventor friend. With the help of a third kid, they follow it and build themselves a spaceship. Now what?
American kids go to a space camp during the summer holidays. They learn how to operate the Space Shuttle. A team consisting of a guy who just entered to meet girls, a wanna be astronaut and an instructor who wanted to go on a mission instead of teaching can sit in the Shuttle while testing the engines. Then they're launched by mistake ...Written by

The footage of the Space Shuttle Orbiter landing is from Challenger touching down at the conclusion of STS-8. This was the first night landing of the Space Shuttle program. See more »
During the re-entry sequence when the space shuttle enters a flat spin the exterior shots of the shuttle correctly show a combination of out-of-control roll and yaw. The internal cockpit shots show the earth rotating in the background through the side-windows which could only occur if the shuttle were pitching end over end. See more »

Watching this movie again really brought back some great childhood memories . I'm 34 now, have not seen it since I was 12-14. I had almost forgotten about this movie, but when I watched it again recently, some scenes literally brought a tear to my eye! That little robot "Jinx"(friends forever!). It was just like revisiting my childhood. It was an absolutely amazing experience for me. I will always cherish this movie for that reason. I can't believe that was Joaquim Phoenix as a kid. I'm addicted to 80's movies now. I can't get enough of them. Thanks a lot Space Camp. Friends forever. Jinx is still the best "80s movie robot" ever. I named my cat Jinx.
