Farewell to the NYSCamp 2017 Delegates

July 8 – All too early in the morning, delegates began to board aircraft at Yeager Airport in Charleston, West Virginia to make their trek back home.

What can be said about this day is that many hugs were given and many tears shed at the realization that just a mere three and a half weeks ago these same delegates were just arriving in the Mountain State of West Virginia  to experience what over 50 other classes of delegates had been a part of before, over the last half-century, since the very first National Youth Science Camp in 1963. As many delegates described it, West Virginia has become their second home and the NYSCamp has far exceeded their expectations.

For a brief moment in time, students, staff, presenters and guests from all corners of the United States and countries in the Western Hemisphere, joined together in at a rustic little outdoor camp in West Virginia to share big ideas and show how a community of strangers can become a close family with the underlying concept of furthering Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics in the world.
