Experience Michiana

Gordy Young, host of WNIT Public Television's Experience Michiana, interviewed AstroCamp Director Chuck Bueter for the TV show's July 10, 2014, episode. An emphasis of AstroCamp is to "get 'em under the stars and their hands on telescopes." 

When Gordy asked whether kids have the same fascination with space today, Bueter noted part of the appeal of AstroCamp is that it fills a void.  "AstroCamp is an opportunity to wonder at the majesty of the night sky...You get to observe, you get to wonder, and you get to ask questions."

While it is noted members of the Michiana Astronomical Society are among the staff of AstroCamp, the weeklong astronomy adventure is a program of the YMCA at Camp Eberhart in Three Rivers, MI.
