AstroCamp • 2-Week Sessions Ages 12-17
AstroCamp boasts one of the premier science and adventure summer camps in California and one of the few summer camps that accepts campers up to 17 years old. Before coming to camp, campers design their own schedules by choosing from more than 40 different activities. All of AstroCamp’s activities are hands-on and designed for campers to gain new skills and experiences, all while enjoying time with friends and our professional staff. When campers aren’t in their scheduled activities we offer elective periods where campers can sign up and try something new! Elective periods happen multiple times over the two week session so there is no fear of missing out.
Beyond all of the great science, adventure, and hands-on activities, AstroCamp hosts a number of awesome one-of-a-kind night time events. Each and every night, we’ve planned some amazing summer camp fun. Crew Nights are a chance for campers of the same age to hang out with each other while participating in one-of-a-kind events created by the counselors. Previous Crew Nights have included A Night On The Bayou, Alien Olympics, Life-Sized Board Game Night, and many more.
On elective nights campers can choose what they want to do from an ever changing list of activities from camp favorites like our Escape Room to other unique programs like Space Art, Rock’n’Roll Rock Wall, Killer Dungeon, Night Hikes and Zip-lines and more. Numerous times during our two-week session we host all-camp events that brings our entire community together.
The two biggest all-camp events are our themed Carnival and our new Speakeasy. Counselors go all out decorating our conference center into a huge carnival complete with a midway of games, dance floor, a cafe, and separate space for quieter activities. The Carnival theme is picked at the beginning of each summer and all campers are notified by email a full month before camp giving them plenty of time to make up the perfect costume!
