The project would consist of three phases.
The first phase would include: forming a project team, making the program  of the camp together with professors from Department of Physics, Faculty of Sciences University of Novi Sad, animating the participants,  registration of participants and the purchase of necessary materials. For this phase of project we would need two months.
In the second phase, we would held astronomical camp of 6 days for 60 participants in a location suitable for observing the night sky. Camp program would be implemented through lectures and practical workshops. Camp participants would be members of our Scout Group and other Scout Groups, older than 11 years.
