Looking for a Fun Summer Camp done Virtually, well this one's Out of this World! With our Summer Astronomy Camp II, children can be inspired to think big, dream big, and to foster curiosity about an enormous universe in which the boundaries appear unlimited.  A more advanced and challenging version of our summer camp suitable for ages 12-17 or grades 6-12.  With the understanding of some simple terminology and concepts, they are better informed about space and the celestial objects that reside overhead.   The spark of interest often ignites in young minds where the abc's of the universe are brought to light.

Exciting week-long sessions begin in May and extend into September, with lots of fun hands-on activities as they are guided into the mysteries of the universe by a real astronomer who was a consultant with NASA and worked with a space telescope.  The entire week is filled with constant fun and excitement as everyone experiences a supernova explosion of new knowledge and understanding in this virtual journey throughout the cosmos.  Some of the many outrageous activities include constructing a starfinder, using Oreo cookies to see the phases of the Moon, and building an actual telescope from a kit provided by the camp.  Many other unexpected exciting things are in store for campers during the week with incredible and unforgettable events.
