7th Grade Overnight Camps Take Learning and Fun Out of the Classroom

The 7th graders enjoyed amazing weather for their overnight camping trip at Camp Cavell. The students travelled to Lexington on May 5th and 6th with Mr. Wallace and Mr. Turner.

They learned to skip stones, kayak, hike, make s’mores, climb trees, and so much more!

      

Students were also invited to play games and complete challenges that build community while teaching cooperation, problem solving,and creative thinking.

 

We look forward to planning next year’s camp, and hope to see even more families and students there.
