Something for Everyone at the Environmental Summit 2012
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.
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.
Robert (Virginia) - "Kayaking on the reserve was a lot of fun."
Chas (Virginia) - "I loved dominating the Ecolympics with my team :-)"
Savannah (North Carolina) - "Learned lots of awesome things and made a lot of awesome friends."
Celina (North Carolina) - "I loved the Ecolympics. It was so much fun. Being at camp feels great."
Emma (North Carolina) - "Making new friendships."
Gabby (North Carolina) - Learning more about economics and making a lot of new loved, awesome friends."
Samuel (North Carolina) - " Kayaking on the lake."
Tnequa/Monique (North Carolina) - "The preserve and the focus group sessions."
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.
