It’s not even Memorial Day and we started off our season with a bang. More than 100 sixth grade students from Sepulveda Elementary School joined us for a 4 day Outdoor Education and Leadership camp at the Project Discovery ropes course this week. With as much as 4 feet of snow still on the ropes course, everyone faced some extra challenges: digging out elements for the staff and keeping shoes dry for the students. The camp included portable challenges, high course elements and a variety of outdoor education programs. Housing and food services for the camp were handled by the Sky Tavern Ski Program staff.
When the students left they were completely different kids. They learned to trust each other, they made new friendships and went out of their comfort zone. I saw students who barely talked all year working with others and trying their hardest. These students built stronger relationships with their peers and made new friends that will really prepare them for the things they will face in day to day life when they get to middle school. – Ms. Gurling, Sixth Grade Teacher
We look forward to working with Sepulveda Elementary again and hope to see these students again!
