I would be really surprised if the printmaking didn't hold the students'
attention; my experience with teaching in the schools and at art centers
has been that all the students, children and adults alike have been
excited about it; especially if they're allowed to also do some
experimenting. Here are a couple other ideas: Enhance some of the
finished prints with oil pastels. Do a pint with ust white ink, and then
use colred pencil on some of the white areas. Do some monoprints on the
ink blocks before cleaning them off (draw on the glass with matboard
pieces and other tools; you can do lots of layering before starting to
pull prints; do overlays, etc.) Cut up some of the finished prints and
use for collaging. Cut up some of the finished prints and use for
weavings.

Have a good time at your summer camp and let us know what you did and how
it turned out!
