There are few times in life when you have the opportunity to do such impactful work, live in the beautiful mountains, AND belong to an inclusive community knit together by hard work and passionate learning. That is camp! That is AstroCamp! Set in the gorgeous San Jacinto mountains, just a short drive from Palm Springs, AstroCamp is a mountain science adventure program serving campers ages 8-17 during the school year and summertime. From telescope fields to ziplines, AstroCamp is full of adventure and will be the “best and hardest” job you will ever love.
No science background or education is necessary.
