Summer Camps for Rising 5th-8th Grades

UPDATE March 8, 2022: We will not hold camps this year, but we are looking at other programming to serve families over the summer. Check the front page of our website from time to time for updates and follow us on social (FB, Twitter, and Instagram @dyerobservers) for announcements. (Live links are in the lower banner on this page.)


This section is for general information only. Check back in 2023 to see if we are holding camps that year.

The Dyer Observers Space Science Camps support middle-school students in their exploration of the worlds of science, math, engineering, and technology, and opens up their minds to future career possibilities in these fields.

If your child has a strong interest in astronomy and space science and would like to be a part of the Dyer Observatory Space Science Camps, please download and fill out the application below.

The cost for camp includes all materials and transportation, lunch, and tour of the United States Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville. Merit scholarships are not awarded, but financial aid is available to those students who demonstrate financial need. Please include a note with your application.
