7th Grade AstroCamp

Humanities Academy offers an overnight field trip at every grade level. For 7th grade, that trip is to AstroCamp, located in the San Jacinto Mountains near the town of Idyllwild, two hours east of Los Angeles. AstroCamp is a hands-on physical science program with an emphasis on astronomy and space exploration. In addition to being a lot fun, it meets science content standards for California, inspiring students with learning centers geared to our specific grade level. A Micro Gravity Lab, zip line, ropes courses, a Mars based rock wall, and laser/star gazing, represent just a few of the options our group has to choose from when we attend.
