Back from camping… can I go back to camp?

Filed Under (Work) by Laura Smith on 13-10-2010

I’m back at school after camping with the 8th graders.  We had a great time!  The students learned a lot about teamwork, and the 4 c’s:

  • Communication
  • Cooperation
  • Commitment
  • Caring

I think times like this are important for students and teachers alike.  It gives us a break from the routine, but challenges us in a different way.  For example, the challenge I faced this trip was the High Ropes course.  I have gone to Black Rock Retreat with the students at least 6 times, but never had the chance to try the ropes course.  So I practically begged the staff to let me do at least one element, and I did the Zipline.

Here I am climbing up the pole- it was about 35-40 feet tall.zipline2.jpg

and here I am enjoying the ride (after screaming my head off)zipline4.jpg

It is tough to get back in the groove after such a nice time away.  It almost makes me want to go back to camp! allllmossst…

So, to avoid stress, I am taking a break from blogging this week while I catch up on my to-do list back here at school and home.

See you next Monday!
