The fifth graders attended Outdoor Education camp at Warm Beach Conference Center September 19-21. Here is just a snapshot of their time at camp.
I made it to the top of all 3 forty-feet rock walls! -Emily
Our class worked as a team to walk on "turtles" to get to the island across the green sea. -Delsin
The rock climb was more difficult than I thought. -Mercer
The food was super good! -Lili
"The Game of Life" in the forest that included carnivores, omnivores, and herbivores, poison plants, hunters, and searches for food and water. -Madison
Shaking and making butter. It was more difficult than I thought, and the others tell me it tasted good. -Gabe
The girls tried to prank the boys. It was fun, but it didn't work. -Samantha
Nature walk with cool animals or animal remnants: ducks flying up from the pond, horses, snakes, an owl feather, an owl roost, and a rabbit skull. -Elizabeth
Mini golf and basketball. My mom and Eli's dad played, too! -Frank
I climbed 2½ rock walls! The Super Hero Wall was the easiest, then The Chimney Wall, and Burley Face was the most difficult. -Sam
Pioneer Challenge! -Samantha and Lili
Putt-putt golf and winning money from Elizabeth's dad; 75 cents in the "Hole in One Challenge." -Emily
Rock wall climbing! -Shaylee
Swimming! And my dad got to come along. -Elizabeth

Curling up at the end of Miss O's bed, and she thought I was asleep. -Lili
Things that were difficult:
Mini golf on the last day. -Gabe
We crashed our canoe into the dock. -Samantha, Lili, Madison
Getting us out of our comfort zones.
We are all proud of...
The fact that we all stayed dry while canoeing, even if our canoe was tippy or spun in circles.
Emily's accomplishments on the rock walls.
The fact that camp is safe and super fun so that our parents don't have to worry about us. -Samantha
Watching the class bond and work together on the challenges. Watching the girls play games in the cabin. -Miss O
Mary Pat, Anna, Carlos, Mart, Joseph, and Billie Bo Bob (Justin) for their patience and hard work. We enjoyed the challenges, the skits, and the experiments!
Thank you, Mr. Enoch and Mr. Skifstad for driving, chaperoning, giving us fun nicknames, and participating with us.
Miss O for making the arrangements and hanging out with us.
We will always remember how we cheered each other on during the rock wall climb, the campfires, smores, and silly songs!
