Prairie Skies Star Party

Star Party [SP]
Prairie Skies Star Party 2012 will be held at beautiful Camp Shaw-Waw-Nas-See 4-H camp, adjacent to Kankakee River State Park, near Bourbonnais Illinois. Attention ATMers! We place a special emphasis on amateur telescope making, by recognizing outstanding achievement through our ATM Telescope and Accessory Awards. In addition to the usual all night observing; Prairie Skies features an imaging contest, door prizes, catered meals, a swap market, vendors, and a guest speaker or two. Children can participate in their very own age appropriate door prize drawings. Gather with your friends at one or more of our traditional Prairie Dog Community Picnics; and dont miss out on the famous Midnight Chili! As always; complimentary coffee, tea, and hot chocolate will be available in the Dining Hall all day and night throughout the event. Our popular Every Night Movie Festival will feature a variety of films in the Dining Hall. Join us for a great time as Prairie Skies Star Party "continues the tradition" at Camp Shaw. Camp Shaw-Waw-Nas-See provides a semi secluded location, well protected from the glare of off-site lighting. The 6 acre main observing field is grass covered, making it ideal for observing and camping. Rustic barrack style cabins are available for non-campers. The large Dining Hall serves as a gathering place for many of the scheduled activities. Enjoy walking through the woods on shady hiking trails. Follow Rock Creek as it traverses the camp property through a small Silurian dolostone canyon; thats right, this isnt just any ol canyon .... its a Silurian dolostone canyon!! Nearby Kankakee River State Park has an extensive bike trail system, and offers many other recreational opportunities.
