AstroCamp is located in the San Jacinto Mountains near the town of Idyllwild, two hours east of Los Angeles, California. This beautiful 80-acre campus is found on the edge of a mountain meadow surrounded by pine, oak and manzanita. Our facilities and labs offer state of the art equipment for exploring science and the natural world. The campers and counselors are housed in comfortable dorms and meals are served in our lodge-style dining hall.
