First Overnighter a Success!

Yesterday and today the delegates scattered in groups throughout the West Virginia wilderness and found their way back to camp. Many of the overnight trips offered at the National Youth Science Camp give delegates the opportunity to get in touch with Mother Nature and oftentimes try something they haven’t experienced yet in life.  For many delegates, these trips provide them with their first chance to use a map and compass, backpack through the woods, mountain bike, or crawl in a cave.
