''[=SpaceCamp=]'' is a family adventure movie from 1986 about a group of kids at a space camp who unexpectedly get launched up into space for real. However the shuttle was still in pre-flight prepping and thus wasn't prepared for any kind of full mission. With only a limited air supply and virtually no communication with Earth, the kids and their instructor (played by Kate Capshaw) must [[PowerOfFriendship work together]] to get home safe and sound.

* CaliforniaDoubling: An interesting case. The movie was filmed on location at the real-life Space Camp at the Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville, AL, and at the Kennedy Space Center in Titusville, FL. However, the movie places both locations together in the same vicinity. Note that Space Camp was also at the Kennedy Space Center; however this one closed as of 2002.
