3-Day Field Trip
Spend 3 days immersed in science and adventure! Students will learn about physical science, astronomy, and themselves as they build and launch rockets, tackle high ropes elements, and explore the night sky.
5-Day Field Trip
Extend your stay to increase the learning (and the fun)! A 5-day trip allows students to spend more time engaging with the sciences and each other, making for a truly memorable experience.
Year after year, teachers, parents and administrators return to AstroCamp with their students and children. Here’s why they say it’s worth it.
I wanted my students to be challenged — nailed it! I also wanted them to engage in activities they wouldn’t have the chance to do at school, and again, you nailed it. They may not have completely understood everything that they learned, but they were excited by science and wanted to learn more. THAT was my primary goal.
At the time we attended, my hoped-for outcome was for my students to find reasons to believe life would stabilize and that they could overcome the intense trauma they had been through. The over-the-top experiences they had at Astrocamp were so compelling and awesome; it was an absolute joy to watch them be so engaged. Thank you so much for providing this opportunity for our children!
I wanted my daughter to feel engaged and wanting to learn more after coming away from the program. She took in a ton of information, the classes were totally engaging, and she’s asked about returning for more experiences at camp.
