Having a Blast at the Environmental Center Summit Hosted at Catawba College
It's been a busy week for sure at "Redesigning Our Future" (a camp for high school students) with an environmentalism theme. We hit breakfast at 7:30 a.m., and the lights aren't out until long after sunset. But, we've had a great time and learned a lot.
Catching Our Breath for Just a Minute
These young ladies take a quick break before heading off to a focus group which range from dance and blogging to economics and sacred spaces.
We asked a random group of students waiting out on the brick yard what they considered one highlight to date at the summit.

Friends Who Care About the Planet are Extra Special Friends
We are enjoying all the great information and ideas and all the neat activities, but friendships play a huge part in a camp experience. We are the future, and we will be working together. It's great to find like minded teens who care about our environment.
