Year after year, teachers, parents and administrators return to AstroCamp with their students and children. Here’s why they say it’s worth it.

We love AstroCamp! Learning about the universe has never been so engaging, active or fun! The camp is beautiful and the instructors are amazing — so knowledgeable and fabulous with kids. We look forward to Astro every year!

Teacher, Stoneybrooke Christian School

It gives the students an in-depth look at science, while experiencing time away from home. They also learn to become responsible without their parent(s) around.

Administrator, South Bay Junior Academy

I wanted them to go home with more scientific knowledge, learn to work with others they do not know in their groups, open their eyes to the beauty around them sans phones, and realize how cool science is when you get to do these hands on activities that aren’t available/allowed in their science classrooms! You provided all of these outcomes!
