“My 8-year-old son loved the week-long camp which really struck the perfect balance of doing something active outdoors, making new friends and learning complex concepts through experiential learning. He enjoyed both getting out into the field to study the geography as well as the two days in the Foundry making and building models by applying what they learned. He is now an avid rock collector, and talks about Mr Wouter all the time. I am sure he would love to join the next camp!"- CAROLYN,
