Blocks of rooms have been reserved at two hotels in Penticton. We recommend booking EARLY because there is an annual race event happening in Penticton at the time of the summer school, so hotels are expected to fill up quickly.

Bus transportation to/from the observatory will be stopping at the two hotels listed below. You may choose to stay at a different venue, but you will be responsible for getting to one of these pickup points. A bus schedule will be sent out later.
