Nature Camp 2020–Geology

Online Meetings: Fridays 11:00 AM – Noon (EDT)

This summer, Geology, taught by Michael Haddad (left) and Carter Boyd, will be looking at your computers from the inside out, reverse engineering your hometown, and prosecuting the most prolific serial killers in Earth history. Rocks are the oldest time capsules on the planet, come open them up with us and learn about how they are integral to our lives at Camp, at home, and beyond.
