AstroCamp • 2-Week Sessions Ages 12-17
Daily Camp Life
Two Weeks – 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.
Nightly Social Programs
Beyond all of the great science, adventure, and hands-on activities, AstroCamp hosts a number of awesome 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 created by the counselors. Previous Crew Nights have included A Night On The Bayou, Alien Olympics, Life-Sized Board Game Night, and a tone more.
On elective nights campers choose from a variety of fun, unique programs like Space Art, Rock’n’Roll Rock Wall, Killer Dungeon, Night Hikes, Escape Rooms , and more. Numerous times during our two-week session we host all-camp events that brings our entire community together.
The two biggest events are our themed Casino and Carnival. Counselors go all out decorating our dining hall and conference center into an arena of games, dance floor and a cafe. The Carnival and Casino theme is picked at the beginning of each summer and the 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.
