Summer 2014: Water World 

The Rochester Young Scholars Academy at Geneseo(RYSAG) is pleased to announce the 8th Residential Summer Camp for Rochester City School students rising into 6-11th grades.The camp will take place on the SUNY Geneseo campus from
July 14-25th and will involve lessons by Geneseo faculty, high school teachers and college students. The New York State Department of Health Livingston County certifies RYSAG .

Water World 2014This year’s camp asks campers to imagine a post-apocalyptic scene in 2500 when the polar ice caps have completely melted resulting in the sea level to rise to 600 feet in Rochester. Important questions campers will consider are: How would they eat, live, commute and where would you go to school? SUNY Geneseo will offer programming that will bring awareness to global water problems that continue to escalate and affect the quality of life for billions of people. The struggle to acquire and maintain clean water supplies saps the energy of communities. Empowering students through an understanding of the relationship between their health and water resources can help them to become catalysts in their own communities. We will be using Project Wet curricula that have been used in over 50 countries on five continents. This camp will use interactive, multi-sensory, collaborative, and solution-oriented methods to teach contemporary 21st Century Skills. Although the scenario involves fiction, the STEM training is real.

Join us for a fun and educational camp.
