Nice article from The Onion:

Modernized Space Camp Allows Kids To Simulate Frustration Over Lack Of Funding

When they take their seats in our mock congressional chamber, campers will work together to deliver an impassioned yet ultimately futile request for continued support of NASA until they have no choice but to stand up and leave, having just witnessed their life's work go up in smoke.

Last Fall when I was at Space Camp (adult program) in MOCR as CAPCOM for the first mission, I made the comment that, "If this was an accurate mission sim, they find some minor glitch in a computer program and this launch would be scrubbed until after we've left." The people around me didn't get the joke but I'm positive I heard the trainers trying to choke back some laughter.
