YMCA Camp Eberhart enjoys one of the only astronomy programs in the entire country, and has been visited by professional astronomers from coast to coast! The unique program is designed for boys and girls ages 9 and up that are eager to discover, and ready to begin the great adventure of exploring the universe! Young minds are curious and eager to discover. They are ready to begin the great adventure of exploring the universe with the endurance to stay up after dark, stargazing and telescoping. Nine is a great age to start, and Astro Camp is the best place to start! Astro Camp 2018 will be held July 29 – August 4th.
Our dedicated resident astronomer, Darren Drake, has taught astronomy at the collegiate level, and gives campers the opportunity to discover the inner astronomer in themselves. Combined with our high-tech equipment, campers can take an exciting journey through the universe. YMCA Camp Eberhart is fortunate to enjoy an 18″ Obsession telescope, an 11″ C11 telescope, and a fleet of 8″ Dobsonian telescopes. Campers taking part in our astronomy program will see things they’ve never seen before!
