    Astronomy Camp is all about discovering the Eureka moment! Under dark skies at southern Arizona's Kitt Peak National Observatory, teenagers explore "the heavens" with large telescopes and experience the excitement of scientific inquiry. Students from around the world attend week-long, residential programs in June.

    Each Camp is an "immersion" experience emphasizing a hands-on learning approach with activities driven by student engagement and interest. A prior background in astronomy is not required.
