AstroCamp boasts one of the premier science and adventure programs in California. Explorer campers will spend their mornings at some of our core, exciting programs, and then in the afternoon our 10-14 year olds will get the chance to pick from a variety of programs and design their own adventure. All of AstroCamp's programs are hands-on and designed for campers to gain new skills and experiences, all while enjoying time with friends and staff members.
Each morning campers participate in 2 activity periods, with each period lasting an hour and a half. These programs are specialized and designed for the cabin groups. AstroCamp aims to give campers a taste of all the amazing activities our camp can offer, and the morning activities let the group participate in our core science and aventure programs. Campers will visit some of our hands-on science labs, they'll build and launch water rockets, they'll zip on our zipline and have fun at some other high ropes activities, and more.
During the afternoons, campers will get to choose 2 periods of electives, with each period lasting an hour and a half. These programs are designed to be fun, adventurous, scientific, educational, exciting, and unique. Electives change each afternoon, and programs will be offered multiple times throughout the session, so that all campers receive a chance to try all of our amazing programs and acitivities. Some electives are like core programs, and give those campers a chance to experience a program even further. Other electives are new and exciting programs that allow campers to try new things.
Beyond all of the great science, adventure, and hands-on programs that campers experience throughout the day, the camp fun and traditions begin with our one-of-a-kind social program. Each and every night, we've planned some amazing summer fun. Crew nights are a chance for campers of the same age to participate in interactive and engaging social activities. On elective nights, campers will choose from a variety of fun, unqiue programs like Space Art, Rock n Roll Rock Wall, Star Trek, and more. The social program kicks into gear during the middle of the session Carnival. Counselors go all out decorating our dining hall into an arena of games, dance floor, and bar. The Carnival theme is picked at the beginning of each summer and campers and staff go all out to get dressed up in accordance to the theme. All of our social programs are fun, interactive and engaging.
