Our 6th grade students attended Camp Nesbit Wednesday through Friday last week and the weather couldn’t have been more perfect! They were able to take part in several activities during their stay. There were eleven high school students who served as counselors and guided the students around campus. We appreciate their willingness to help make the 6th grade experience even more enjoyable by playing games with them and taking them on walks around the lake! We would like to thank Shanelle Saunders from Ottawa National Forest for teaching us about wilderness survival and plant life identification, Andrew Robertson from Ottawa National Forest for teaching map and compass skills and Greg Rainy for the archery lessons. We would also like to thank Mr. Hofstede for leading our canoeing and trust fall stations and Mr. Sharrow and Ms. Koval for leading the low ropes course. Thank you to Katie Hampston and Melissa Mieloszyk for being our nurses at camp. They also helped Mrs. McRae and Mrs. McGrath cook and serve meals each day. Mrs. McGrath and Mrs. McRae ran a paracord bracelet making station and were coordinators for this year’s camp experience.
When you head downtown this week, check out the creative work of our students celebrating homecoming! A big thank you to the advisors and adults who helped out!
