What is AstroCamp?

Set in the beautiful surroundings of the San Jacinto Mountains, Astrocamp is nestled amongst giant pine trees, huge boulders, and scenic meadows.  Astrocamp's facilities and labs are state-of-the-art, offering students premier equipment for exploring science and the natural world.  Students stay in comfortable dormitory accommodations with indoor bathrooms and spacious rooms.  Astrocamp's campus is comprised of rustic lodge-style buildings, which fit in perfectly with the mountainous setting of Idyllwild.


What You'll See and Do

Astrocamp is a unique outdoor science program available to students of your school.  Located in the small town of Idyllwild, there isn’t a better place to learn about the stars than our 90-acre facility.  With the beauty of the San Jacinto Mountains, the excitement of experimenting with science, and the ability to gaze at stars, planets and messier objects, children take a voyage into science during their stay at Astrocamp.

The student’s journey will begin after leaving the desert floor and traveling into the San Bernardino Nation Forest.  Once they arrive at Astrocamp they will be greeted by one of their instructors who will show them where they are living and give them a little time to get situated.  No sooner than they are moved in do they start on their voyage.  Schools choose from a list of classes and decide what best fits their curriculum.  While at Astrocamp, students will have an opportunity to do a variety of things like exploding hydrogen balloons in Atmosphere and Gases, train like astronauts in Microgravity, have their hair stand on end in Electricity and Magnetism, or swing high in the air on our ropes course.

One of the main attractions of Astrocamp is the astronomy program.  Due to our location, elevation, and two state-of-the-art telescope viewing areas, students have a great opportunity to get hands on experience exploring the night-time sky.

At the end of their trip students will wave goodbye to their instructors and return to their school and everyday surroundings with a stronger knowledge of astronomy and physical science as well as themselves. Whether coming on a three or five day excursion to Astrocamp, students will obtain the experience of a lifetime and remember the trip for years to come.

What To Expect

When you come to Astrocamp you will be assigned to an instructor who will lead you and your fellow classmates through a variety of exciting classes. You will have two classes in each morning, two in the afternoons, and one in the evening. During these classes you might build and launch rockets, experience micro-gravity in the pool, climb to the top of the Power Pole or have a hair-raising experience using the Van de Graaff generator. There are so many great activities that no matter where you are, you are bound to be having fun. During the evening your instructor will lead your group on a fantastic night adventure. You will begin by taking a night hike up to the telescopes area where you will view planets, galaxies and stars. On another night you might get to experience AstrOlympics in the gymnasium, a free swim in the pool or any one of our exciting night programs. Since Astrocamp is located high up on a mountain in the San Bernardino National Forest, you are bound to see wildlife and mountain views that will take your breath away.
