We ran a 3 day 2 night outdoor school for our grade 7/8 students. Students experienced hands on learning activities in an outdoor setting; canoeing, swimming, hiking, oral storytelling, traditional and modern field games, and ecological principles.
Our second camp was a great success. We found our students grew a sense of community as they worked to fund raise and prepare for the event.
Many had their first extended outdoor experience away from home. The feedback from all students was very positive, and we are excited by the opportunities that this experience provides.
We are continuing to improve the programming we have designed for the camp and look forward to expanding the opportunities we can provide our students in experiencing and participating in the outdoors.
