In 2018, the Mt. Diablo Silverado STEM Committee volunteers launched a pilot program to offer the Boy Scout Nova Awards and Supernova Activities at Camp Wolfeboro. The program was very well received and plans are underway to expand the program in 2019. This year we plan to offer–Shoot!, Start Your Engines!, Whoosh!, and the newest Nova Award, Splash!. We will be exploring ways to expand the opportunities for Supernova activities, too. Stay tuned to this space for updates.
