We packed things up, had an early lunch and left home at 12:30 pm on Wednesday. The hosting school was about 2 hours of driving distance away. We were mostly on interstate 77 heading south. We had never been to that part of Ohio before and realized that the scenery was beautiful with lush green trees, farms, and little towns connected by little towns.
After checking in and helping Adventurer Jr. set his dorm room up, we hugged, said goodbye and I felt part of me was taken away.
We then drove to West Virginia because it’s just on the other side of the Ohio River.
The Ohio River Islands National Wildlife Refuge was very close to the bridge. We stopped there and took a look.
We left some change in the donation box for chickadee food and drove back home.
The first day without Adventurer Jr. was the toughest. I couldn’t sleep and was hoping that he would be O.K there.
Finally, it’s Sunday morning. We left home around 9 am to pick Adventurer Jr. up. Adventurer Jr. said that the camp was very intense and he liked it a lot. There’s no WIFI and all he could do was study. The food was good as well. The money we spent on this camp was well worth it. Next year we’ll sign both Adventurer Jr. and Adventurer Jr. II up for this camp.
The Cost: $449
- Residential Camp Fee: $449
- The living quarter was a typical dorm room that he shared with another student.
- He mentioned that a reading lamp would’ve helped with his study. I added it to the list.
- He also packed some study material of his own, but it turned out to be excessive. He had no time because his schedule in the camp was very tight.
