Lay under the stars and listen to the telling of constellation stories! Gardner Camp has the best viewing sky in the entire region. Learn the location of several significant stars in the sky during Summer and Fall and how to find your way using the stars. During this session participants will learn about Gardner Camp’s telescope, view amazing planets and discuss the size and scale of space objects. They’ll go home with a newfound fascination with the night sky. Geared toward youth ages 10-14. Registration required. Youth must be a member of a non-profit youth organization (church group, Scouts, 4-H, YMCA, Kroc, Teen Reach, etc.)
Please note: Our Gardner Camp programs have become extremely popular. In order to make sure that we can accommodate children as fairly as possible, registration may be conducted through a random lottery when the number of registrations exceed the program limits.
A lottery system ensures equal access for participation. Parents/guardians have multiple days to apply for each event for inclusion in the lottery. You will be notified of the results of the lottery, whether your child/children have a slot in the event or will be placed on a waiting list, at least 1 week prior to the event.
