After the sun has set, you can spread a blanket out in your backyard, lie down and gaze at the stars. Try to have your campers identify constellations and shooting stars. Another fun way to enjoy the stars is to create your own names for patterns of stars that you see in the night sky. A telescope can make the experience even more eye-opening.
