Our goal at AstroCamp is to get kids to look up, to learn constellations and stars, and to find objects hidden in the deep by using telescopes that they control. The majesty of the firmament awaits--but don't forget s'mores!

About AstroCamp

AstroCamp is a week-long astronomy feature integrated into the regular YMCA Camp Eberhart camping experience. By day, AstroCampers attend two of the four time slots of their choosing with other campers, and two time slots (Periods 3 & 4) dedicated to astronomy and telescope use. By night, when the rest of the YMCA campers retire to their cabins, the AstroCampers come out to Dave's House to begin a night of deep sky adventure.

The staff at AstroCamp are dedicated amateur astronomers and educators who enjoy sharing the night sky as much as they enjoy observing all it contains. 

The Yarger Observatory & Astronomy Learning Center at YMCA Camp Eberhart is home to AstroCamp. On the shores of Corey Lake in Three Rivers, Michigan, dark skies and cool breezes make for great nighttime observing.

Astronomy has been offered at YMCA Camp Eberhart for decades, but the AstroCamp program takes it to a new level. Check out the AstroCamp images taken by staff since 2003, and see if you want to join the fun under the stars.
