Brandywine Red Clay Alliance Summer Camp 2018

This year was no different. I took Brandywine Red Clay Alliance Summer Camp underground. There were a lot of new kids and a few from last year. All week long they have been learning about rocks and a bit about geology.

There were 17 of them, including staff. They all did really good and tried all the challenges we had time for. I wish we had time to see the whole cave. I wish we had time to see other caves. I wish I had about a dozen like them to spend the whole year with. There is a lot I could teach a group of kids like this. 

I tried to get as many pictures of them as I could so they can tag and bag them for proof of what they accomplished. No one is going to believe you when you get back to school in a few weeks. I hope some of them come back next year. 

Like I said, I really enjoyed playing with them. Hummmm. I wonder if they need any more councilors next year. It would be awesome to spend the whole week with them, and see what other program weeks are like.
