Backpacking and Camping
The weather just did not cooperate with us this year! Three weekends were possible backpacking and camping trips and each time the trips had to be cancelled because of thunderstorms and freezing temperatures! Since every remaining weekend was already scheduled with choir trips or guest speakers, what were we to do?
The solution? Take a mini backpacking and camping trip! On Wednesday afternoon, we headed out. The backpackers hiked into the Winding Stairs area, and the campers went to Lake DeGrey. Thursday morning we spent in Outdoor School learning basic First Aid. We enjoyed being out in nature as long as we could and finally returned to campus late in the afternoon. Tired, no really exhausted, but refreshed too!
