More information on Youth Science Camp
The National Youth Science Camp (NYSC) is an innovative and highly successful summer science honors program for two high-achieving high school students from each state in the nation and others around the world. The NYSC experience is offered at no cost to its participants, so that selected delegates may attend regardless of their financial status.
The 2014 NYSC will be held at Camp Pocahontas in the Monongahela National Forest near Bartow in the eastern mountains of West Virginia. Delegates to the 2014 NYSC will arrive in Charleston, West Virginia, on Friday, June 27, 2014, and will depart on Sunday, July 20, 2014. The National Youth Science Foundation will arrange round trip transportation from an airport near the delegate’s home to Charleston, WV. Delegates must participate in the entire NYSC program.
Each year, the governor of West Virginia invites the governor of every other state to initiate a process to select two delegates to attend the NYSC as his/her state’s delegation. In New Hampshire each high school may submit one candidate. Student applications are entirely online this year. Students may get application information on the NYSC Web site at http://apply.nysc.org.
