A TESTIMONIAL REGARDING THE ADVANTAGES OF ASTROCAMP
“AstroCamp provides a uniquely rich and memorable experience for all students who are fortunate enough to attend! I have shared in the privilege of bringing my fourth grade class to AstroCamp for the last ten years. The advantages of AstroCamp that await them in the beautiful mountains of Idyllwild are astounding. During space night, students are able to stare at the brilliant mountain sky through high tech telescopes under the guidance of knowledgeable and patient staff. This year my students were overwhelmed by the beauty of Saturn and the fascinating craters on the moon!
The leaders that have guided my students have consistently been considerate, positive role models and enthusiastic teachers. They have been a wellspring of knowledge in their field of scientific studies! The activities that the camp offers cannot be replicated in my classroom or in our science lab. My students train as astronauts in the microgravity class, building satellites in the pool while wearing wet suits and snorkeling gear; design and launch rockets after being taught the basic physics involved; participate in a multitude of hands- on experiments; and grow in confidence as they rock climb and zip line.
As an added bonus to the outstanding academic support that is provided for our curriculum, one of the advantages of AstroCamp is that its facilities are well-maintained and the food served is fresh and delicious. Particular student needs, such as vegetarian or gluten free diets, are well accommodated. As a teacher, I have developed great confidence in the AstroCamp staff and programs, and I am amazed each year by the memories that my students and I take home!”
