Press Release

CHARLSTON, WV – July 14th 2016 – John Carl Begley, a graduate from Zachary High School in Zachary, Louisiana represented his state at the National Youth Science Camp.  Begley 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 programing 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.

“My favorite part of camp would have to be all of the unique people that I have gotten to meet from all over the Americas,” said Begley.  “My views on the world have definitely become more broad because of this camp.”

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.
