The Marine Science Consortium’s Homeschool Family Camp

We just returned from one of the best homeschooling experiences we have ever had. Three days at Wallops Island, VA, sleeping in a noisy dorm, eating awful cafeteria food and being shuttled from activity to activity. Sounds like hell, doesn’t it? It wasn’t, not even for my quiet-loving, introverted self.

The MSC’s activities were not the boring fluff many school-oriented activities are made of, not in any way. The children were drawn right into collecting scientific samples, testing water quality, identifying the samples in a laboratory setting, team work and various safety considerations when in a lab, using chemicals or on a boat.

You can check out the MSC here. One word of advice: take your camera on the wet, soggy, marsh walk unless it’s raining.
