Open Mic: 2014 Camp Avocet–an intern's perspective

I don’t think there is any doubt in anyone’s mind that Camp Avocet was totally, undeniably awesome this year, so I won’t spend too long telling you all that. In mid-August 2014, a committed staff and a crew of very enthusiastic and almost unbelievably skilled campers assembled in Lewes, in southern Delaware, for the second year of this ABA camp.

Velociraptors and Moving Rocks: Notes from Camp Colorado

Open Mic: Hog Island Adventures!

I’m accustomed to watching Nest Cams from my computer in Lansing, Michigan.
