Kids from all over the world dream of going to space, visiting new planets, and riding on spaceships.  Space Camp is the closest thing to taking an intergalactic trip into the atmosphere.  In fact, since 1982, the U.S. Space & Rocket Center museum’s education program has provided educational experiences for children from fourth grade to high school age.

For the lucky kids that get the opportunity to go to space camp, they are given ample opportunity to learn more about math, science, and technology.  It also puts them into contact with other campers, who like them, have an interest in outer space.  More than 500,000 students and adults have attended Space Camp since it was founded.

Trading Pins Becoming Part of Camp Culture

The memories that they make during the duration of camp will last them a lifetime.  That’s why it’s ideal for each camper to have his or her own set of custom lapel pins to trade while they are participating in the program.  Like sporting events, pin trading has become an important part of camp culture.

Breaking the Ice is Easy When Everyone Has Pins to Trade

When all the children arrive at camp the first day, they have the opportunity to trade pins with other children.  This is a great way for the campers to break the ice and start to know the other participants that they will be spending the next week with. These small pieces of memorabilia are made in a way that they tie into space camp themes.  They also feature identifying information about the camper like their name and a symbol of something that represents them and their unique personality.

Lapel Pins Plus Makes Exciting Space Camp Trading Pins

Lapel Pins Plus recently designed a pin for a girl who will be going to space camp later this summer.  The pin was actually designed as a cloisonné pin which has a smooth, jewelry-like finish.  This added to the visual appeal of the pin and increased its tradeability.  Any camper seeing the pin would want to add it to his or her collection.

Custom trading pins can be made in any shape, size or color.  They are designed in a way that reflect the camper’s unique personality.  They are also visually appealing which makes them easy to trade.  Other campers will love to see the following add-ons on the trading pins that they collect:

  • Glitter
  • Blinking Lights
  • Cut Outs
  • Dangling Charms
  • Spinning and Sliding Pieces
  • Bobble Heads
