We are excited that you are considering sending your child to AstroCamp. Our goal is to make your child’s trip one that they will remember for the rest of their lives. The website will give you a thorough overview of our programs and hopefully answer any questions you may have. The lead teacher will choose classes from our program that fit your school’s current curriculum. With a focus on physical science, astronomy and the exploration of the universe, we strive to meet each school’s individual scholastic needs. Additionally, with the new national focus on teaching STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) in our schools, AstroCamp’s curriculum is more relevant than ever. It’s a program that we believe in, and one that has positively impacted more than a 250,000 students since 1991.
Individual exploration and discovery are at the heart of AstroCamp’s educational philosophy. In addition to its academic value, another major benefit of attending AstroCamp is the Camp Experience. While camp is fun, exciting, and educational, it also teaches children practical life skills. By working in small teams to accomplish goals, they learn to get along with others in a group living situation and forge stronger friendships. The very nature of the experience encourages personal responsibility, initiative, and independence. Camp is an opportunity to develop character. We look forward to sharing our vibrant and engaging hands-on program with your child in the near future.
President & CEO.
