Printing at art camp

Has anybody taught relief print making at a summer camp? I'm getting ready to
leave at the end of this month and am getting nervous. It is a fine arts camp
that I'll be working at but I'm not sure how interested the students will be
in what I have to offer when painting, drawing & sculpting are their other
choices. I've prepared quite a bit to guide them through multiple color block
prints. I've also prepared direct prints from natural elements such as leaves
& flowers, and have constructed relief plates out of paper, tape, cardboard,
etc. It's a two week session in which I'll be working in the mornings with
middle school people who are there specifically for the art classes. In the
afternoons I'll have the music majors who take art as an elective. Depending
on the experiences of the students I know I'll have to be flexible. A friend
commented that what I have prepared doesn't seem challenging enough (3 color
prints?) and that it won't hold their interest. I welcome any constructive
comments, suggestions or experiences people might have to help me prepare for
my class.

Thank you, Susan
