†RUSD AstroCamp 2016†
September 30-October 2, 2016
ASTROCAMP is a unique outdoor science program specializing in astronomy and physical science. Classes include light and lasers, rocketry, electricity and magnetism, and a sophisticated observational astronomy evening program, among many others. This unique program is located in the San Jacinto Mountains of Southern California, one mile from the town of Idyllwild. The campus includes 90 acres of meadows and trees at an elevation of 5,600 feet. The facility has comfortable heated dormitories with restrooms and showers. Three nutritionally-balanced meals are provided daily in the dining hall. ASTROCAMP has spacious labs, briefing rooms, gymnasium, rope course, climbing wall, swimming pool, as well as recreation and outdoor program areas. ASTROCAMP maintains a resident staff of qualified and well trained instructors. All instructors have an appropriate college degree and are trained in first aid, CPR, and water safety. They are enthusiastic and eager to lead students through this unique science adventure. All of the ASTROCAMP programs are conducted by a research group consisting of approximately 15 students. One adult chaperone must accompany each research group. The research group will be led by an ASTROCAMP instructor for the entire program, which results in a very positive rapport between the students and their instructor. ASTROCAMP instructors are known for their personal attention to the students.
