around the “campfire”, and take a field trip to the Strong
Museum of Play.

Are you a nature enthusiast? Ever thought about turning that avocation
into an occupation? This week, teen leaders will be on the trail of careers
with an outdoor focus, from forestry to environmental engineering.

create our own myths using modern technology.
