THE PARENT GUIDE FOR ASTROCAMP
AstroCamp strives to provide the very best experience for campers and parents. The Parent Guide for AstroCamp is a comprehensive summer camp resources guide designed to help you prepare your child for summer camp and to answer all your questions. You will find a list of topics and summer camp resources to guide you along the way and make for an easier preparation.
IS A SUMMER CAMP PHYSICAL REQUIRED?
YES. The physician’s examination form is available through the “Forms & Documents” link on your online account. Have this form completed by your physician prior to the start of camp. The physical must have taken place within one year of the start of their enrolled session.
If there are any activities that you DO NOT wish your camper to participate in, please contact the Summer Camp Director.
TRANSPORTATION TO AND FROM ASTROCAMP
Transportation to and from AstroCamp is the responsibility of the camper’s parent or guardian unless arrangements have been made with AstroCamp through the transportation form.
AstroCamp provides transportation from and to the ONT airport only. Please log in to your camper account and complete the transportation form with the arrangements you have made to drop off and/or pick up your camper at camp. If someone other than the primary guardian listed in your camper account is picking up your camper, the name and contact number of that person must be provided to allow us to release your camper to them.
We love AstroCamp! Camp has been my son’s home away from home for the past four summers. The depth of friendships and connections formed from his experience speak to the kind and inclusive nature of camp, where everyone gets to be exactly as they are and encouraged to try incredible new activities. The joyful hellos and tearful goodbyes tell the story of time well spent. AstroCamp is now part of my son’s DNA.

GET TO KNOW OUR CAMP COUNSELORS
All camp counselors are current university students with a background working with children. Applicants go through a rigorous hiring process including multiple interviews, a background check, and drug testing. Many cabin counselors were even campers themselves!
Counselors go through an intensive 8-day training program prior to any campers arriving at camp. They are trained in team-building, group-leading, child development, safety, and being sensitive to individual campers’ needs and life experiences. Counselors complete training with the tools and knowledge to support campers through common camp challenges such as homesickness, trying new things, and friendship building.
