Press Release

CHARLESTON, WV – July 14th 2016 – Colby Bosley-Smith, a graduate of the Capital City Public Charter School in Washington DC represented Washington DC at the National Youth Science Camp.  Bosley-Smith joined 102 other delegates from 48 states and 8 countries in the prestigious annual science program.  The National Youth Science Camp, located in the rustic Monongahela National Forest near Charleston West Virginia, integrates science programming with music, art and outdoor activities.

Each year, every state and several countries send up to two delegates, to the National Youth Science Camp.  Delegates attend lectures by science industry leaders, engineers, and researchers, but also participate in outdoor activities.  Delegates also have the opportunity to participate in directed studies where they gain individual hands on experience in fields they find interesting.

“I really enjoy the overnight trips at Science Camp, as they provide a space for us to really get to know a group of out peers and foster unique interactions with nature.”

The National Youth Science Camp is operated by the National Youth Science Foundation. For more information, please visit Click the photograph below to download a high resolution version suitable for publication.
