Prairie Skies Star Party

September 22, 2011 @ 12:00 am - September 25, 2011 @ 12:00 am

Prairie Skies Star Party 2011 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, a swap market, vendors, catered meals, and a guest speaker or two. Children can participate in their very own age appropriate door prize drawings. Visit the Prairie Dog Stand and enjoy a tasty prairie dog; and don’t 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 Almost All 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.
