October Monthly Youth Star Party
October 23 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm EDT
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. Do you know how to find your way using the stars? Find out how during this event. During this event, participants will learn about Gardner Camp’s telescope, view amazing planets, and discuss the size and scale of space objects. Youth will go home with a newfound fascination with the night sky. Geared toward youth ages 10-14 but we can also modify the program for older youth. Registration required.

Our focus in October is the Moon, Saturn, and Jupiter. The moon's monthly visit with the gas giant planets Saturn and Jupiter continues during our Star Party.
In addition to our monthly events, we create and schedule special events for non-profit groups. If you have a group and want to schedule a special event, feel free to contact us.
Each month we host our star parties with the intent to get our youth outdoors to experience the night sky. Each party is different with an emphasis on different objects in the sky. Custom parties can be scheduled by contacting our office. Scouting programs and school districts often request custom presentations based on their current interest and study topics.
