TUESDAY JUNE 22, AT SKMS:
We started the day by having our orientation, after that we broke into spheres. Then, we headed to our room and played a few ice breaking games to help get to know one another. For the remainder of the day we worked on our Rube Goldberg machines and got better acquainted with all of our new friends! 

  
 
WEDNESDAY JUNE 23, AT BELLE GROVE:
Today we took a trip to Belle Grove where we took a tour and learned more about the history of the plantation. After the tour, we helped out with a community service project where we pruned trees. We then headed back to SKMS where we ended the day with working on our Rube Goldberg machines. 

  

THURSDAY JUNE 24, CAVING:
Today we had an amazing opportunity to explore a cave! We met at the school and then headed to the cave where we met three very experienced cavers who were nice enough to show us the ropes!

  

FRIDAY JUNE 25, AT BLANDY FARM:
Today we took a trip to Blandy Farm where toured and did some studying about invasive species as well as some other activities. After that we did another community service project where removed invasive plants. We then headed to the pool where we spent the rest of the evening eating pizza and having fun with friends! 

  

MONDAY JUNE 28, AT SKYLINE HIGH:
Today went to Skyline High School were we met employees from LFCC and friends of the North Fork to test the river water and find some creatures that lurk within. We then had lunch there and ended the day with an activity.

  

TUESDAY JUNE 29, CANOE DAY:
Today we went canoeing! All spheres met at Downriver Canoe Company and canoed nearly ten miles! It was such a fun day and the weather was great! 


WEDNESDAY JUNE 30, AT FREDERICK CO. LANDFILL:
Today we went on a trip to the Frederick County Landfill where we learned about waste management and what happens to things that we throw out on a day to day basis.


THURSDAY JULY 1, FINAL DAY:
Today is the last day and it has been a very fun two weeks, we have made many new friends, had many new experiences, and made memories that will last a lifetime! We worked on our projects and had our closing ceremony! We will miss everyone very much!
