Clemson University introduces astronomy camp for middle- and high-school students

Clemson University plans to open a new camp this summer for students interested in space and astronomy. The Clemson Space Camps will be hosted at the Pisgah Astronomical Research Institute in western North Carolina and will be run collaboratively by staff from both Clemson and PARI.

The PARI facility has research-grade optical and radio telescopes, and PARI’s skies meet the gold-level rating standard of the International Dark Sky Association, making it an outstanding place to view outer space.

Campers will conduct independent and group research under the guidance of astronomers and scientists. They’ll also take a field trip to the main Clemson University campus to tour the labs of some of the university’s astrophysics faculty. The camps also include activities such as campfires, hiking and tubing.

Middle-school students (ages 11-14) are offered a one-week residential camp; high-schoolers (14-17) can attend a two-week residential camp. Registration is open now.

    I am a gifted endorsement student at the University of North Georgia and I am needing to observe a few camps for hours. Who do I need to contact about to see if it would be okay for me to attend?

      Did you try following the link for the camp and then using the contact information on their website?
