    1. Hi Stephanie;

      I usually run a week of astronomy camp as one of the Peterborough Museum & Archives’ day camps in July or August, though this is for ages 7-12 (the Museum has a summer volunteer program for teens 14-18 for which 2-5 participants end up helping with my program[s].)

      If you have teenagers interested in astronomy and can’t make it to the area, I highly recommend getting involved with your local astronomy club or planetarium, as well as getting Star Walk (about $3) for the iPhone or iPad and the book Nightwatch by Canadian author Terence Dickinson. Though I’m biased in this as I write for it, I’d also recommend subscribing to Sky News: The Canadian Magazine of Astronomy & Stargazing.

      Hope that helps!


  1. Hi, I am an outdoor educator and have found sometimes star gazing can become boring when the students are already familiar with Greek/Roman mythology. I was wondering if you had any resources in regards to first nation star gazing stories, myths and legends. Thank you kindly!
