Students exploring the water in the Great Salt Lake Website
Camp Great Salt Lake 2014


Camp Great Salt Lake 2014 was a week long experience that gave high school students the opportunity to see what it's like to be a student studying science at Westminster College. They gathered samples out at the lake (paddle boarding was involved!) and analyzed the Lake's salty waters in the lab at Westminster. In addition this year, we spent one night camping at the iconic Spiral Jetty for a copmplete art and science connection to the lake.  The camp culminated in a showcase of student projects and research.
