Building confidence

Adventure, challenges, laughter, friendship: Camp Chingachgook has it all.  This is the 18th year Parker  students have gone off at the start of the school year to gain self-understanding and a good group dynamic.  It is a milestone to get to 4th grade and go on the trip - and each year holds a signature challenge.  The 8th graders climbed Buck mountain and camped out overnight.  It's a long hike - and everyone made it! 

Children gain so much confidence from trying something that is new - and a little bit hard.  Hmmm, I think we all do!
