STAR CAMP for Scouts

The Louisville Astronomical Society Scout Astronomy Merit Badge and Cub Scout STEM/Nova Credit Programs

The Louisville Astronomical Society provides you with everything needed for your scouts to complete a majority of their Boy Scout Merit Badge or receive credit toward the Cub Scout Science Everywhere, Out of This World and Adventures in Science modules of the STEM/NOVA award. STAR CAMP is an exciting weekend of instruction, camping and stargazing.

  • Two Great locations - the LAS Urban Astronomy Center at E.P. “Tom” Sawyer Park and the James G. Baker Center for Astronomy in Curby, Indiana, just one hour from Louisville near Marengo Cave and Cave Country Canoes.

  • Combine canoeing, caving and astronomy in one weekend at our Curby location which is within six miles of Cave Country Canoes and Marengo Cave!

  • The James G. Baker Center for Astronomy and the Urban Astronomy Center both have heated and air-conditioned buildings with classroom, restrooms and kitchen, acres of camping fields with fire rings and wooded areas with hiking trails. The Curby, IN location has a roll-off roof observatory with four telescopes and the UAC has an assortment of scopes for you to view the moon, stars and planets.
