Members of the Western Maryland Homeschool Association recently camped on Assateague Island.
While there, the 15 members visited the discovery center which has a hands-on water display and had an up close encounter with a group of wild horses which visited the campsite one night.
Along with swimming and shell collecting, they camped on their own private beach area of the island and had their own private area of the beach in which to swim.
This is the second year the association has camped there and they hope to continue the tradition next year.
o Members of the Western Maryland Homeschool Association took a field trip to Discovery Station in Hagerstown recently.
The 28 members were from Cumberland, Md., Fairplay, Hagerstown, Smithsburg, Westernport, Md., and the surrounding Four-State area.
Discovery Station offers hands on and model exhibits in science, aviation, history and technology.
While there, they saw an exact replica of the Titanic built by Norman Little from plans and drawings of the original ship. The replica weighs more than 500 pounds and is complete with stained glass windows and replica scale model people.
