Freshwater Academy is a week-long camp that gives high school students the opportunity for hands-on experience and fieldwork in Northwestern Pennsylvania's waterways. Students spend their days studying biology and freshwater ecology at a level they can't achieve in the classroom. They will get wet, they will get dirty, and they will love it!

me and my team putting in a set of coordinates
As a first true activity, it was kinda fun. Geocaching is where you get a set of coordinates, plug it into a compass, and search for a little prize. In our case, the prize was often another set of coordinates, until we got to the end to find a bin full of drawstring bags with a lot of special goodies inside. It allowed us to see a lot of the campus and to stretch our legs a bit. I also enjoyed the freeze pops afterward. This was really cool, and I might even try it at home.
