The Big Eclipse Family Weekend is an opportunity for you to experience this once-in-a-lifetime celestial event with your children. Located an hour's drive from the Portland metro area and in the path of totality, Monmouth, Oregon is considered a prime location to watch the eclipse.

  • Breakfast, lunch, and dinner in the Western Oregon University cafeteria, as well as s'mores on August 20th and an outdoor picnic on the 21st following the eclipse.
  • Educational crafts, nighttime star viewing, and presentations conducted by three high school astronomy and science teachers, and high school camp counselors.
  • Eclipse viewing glasses.
  • Tee shirt for every child and parent.
  • One copy of The Big Eclipse Book and The Big Eclipse Activity Book per child.
  • One parking space at Western Oregon University.

Sorry, no pets allowed on campus.
