Our Star Parties
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 overlooking 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
Our semi-annual 4-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!

Hello Carla. I would prefer you to the Dark Ranger John Goar for information. He usually doesn’t start up until July but he would be the best person to talk to. His email is email@example.com.
My husband will be visiting Olympia National Park May 9- 24 and we’re hoping to plan some star gazing. We checked with the park service and there are no scheduled events for May. Could you refer us to a student or person in the area with a telescope that we could hire to meet us one or two nights?
