Current Year : Senior at W&M
Year Involved : Summer 2009
Worked With : Chesapeake Experience, Inc.


Chesapeake Experience is a kayaking camp for children and science teachers.  Beyond kayaking and being out on the water, I also helped with other activities that stressed Chesapeake Bay species and their habitat and environmental issues surrounding the bay area.  I was also in charge of creating a camp newspaper each week in which the children would write stories about their experience and write up lists of all the species we had seen.  I also was in charge of taking pictures most of the time.
