Our Star Parties
Hurricane Ridge Star Party
The OAS hosts several star parties every year. During the summer, around the new moon, we have our star party up at Hurricane Ridge in the heart of the Olympic Mountains. This is a one night event in an extremely dark site over looking Mount Olympus and the neighboring mountains. The southern skies are excellent not to mention the awesome beauty of the mountains! This is a free star party, except for the entrance fee to the Olympic National Park.
Camp Delany Star Party- Spring 2015 April 15th to 19th*
* The sign up form will be posted mid-February. Thank you for waiting until that time to send in your payment.
Our semi-annual 3 night event is our Camp Delany Star Party hosted in the beautiful Sun Lakes State Park at their environmental learning center. This party occurs in the spring and the fall. There is a fee to attend but all your meals are provided and bunkhouses are available as well as hot showers! This dark site is in Eastern Washington and the views are endless. It is quite the friendly, family oriented affair! Come and join us for loads of fun!
