Our fourth through eighth graders go to Camp Chingachgook on Lake George with their teachers and a few parent helpers each fall for three days. Susie Merrett, Associate Director and our art teacher took these photos.

The setting is spectacular. The staff there is great and the trip helps everyone get to know themselves and each other a little better. Eighth graders sleep out one night and hike up Buck Mountain. The view of Lake George is beautiful from the top.

Students try cooperative games, archery, a campfire sing-a-long, a climbing tower, low and high ropes, canoeing and kayaking. Everyone is challenged to do new things . They bring so much back!
