How will I know if I'm confirmed as a participant of PAS Stargazing Camp?

Are we allowed to bring our own vehicle?

Because we care for your safety and we must depart as a group, PAS does not allow participants to bring their own vehicle. We also require ALL participants to gather at the meet-up venue (Jollibee, G/F AliMall, Cubao) during assembly time for headcount and attendance purposes. After the event, participants are allowed to be dropped of along the way going back to Cubao.

There are  nearby sari-sari stores and participants are allowed to buy there. However, these stores close by 7:00 PM. 

 

While PAS will also be having a mini booth where we will sell basic food items such as instant noodles, biscuit/cracker snacks, instant coffee, and hot water, it is highly encouraged that you bring your own packed food for the camp.

What should we bring?

Aside from the items listed in the infographic image above, participants are also encouraged to bring cameras to the event. However, flash photography is highly discouraged so as not to distract stargazers and astrophotographers.

Will the event push through even if it rains or it gets cloudy?

There will be an official list of participants posted and regularly updated on the event page. You may visit the event page to check your slot and bus assignment.

Can we bring alcohol?

Alcohol or any form of alcoholic beverage is strictly prohibited inside the campsite at all times.

Is there a rental of tent?

None. We recommend that participants should bring their own tent for safety and security purposes.

This stargazing camp is a rain or shine event. As much as we closely monitor the weather, changes in weather patterns are still possible and can happen. However, if the organizers deem the weather conditions to be dangerous, it is our discretion to cancel the event. Just like everyone else, we always aim for clear skies and great weather.
