Camping 2017

“When children come into contact with nature, they reveal their strength.” (Maria Montessori, The Discovery of the Child)

After a year spent learning together, students have shown much growth academically as well as socially. Certainly there have been ups and downs for everyone in all areas. That is only natural, and working through difficult situations also helps people to grow in ways they may not have anticipated. The children have become stronger in character, more courteous to those around them, and more confident in themselves. They have learned when to ask for help and have provided support to others when asked.

Our annual camping trip is a time to celebrate by spending time with each other. The students put up their own tents and pack them up the next morning. They hike and swim. We have a couple of lessons but not like those learned in the classroom. This year, the students toured Historic Forestville and learned from some of the residents who lived there during the late 1800s. The next morning, they toured Mystery Cave and learned more about the karst geology of Minnesota. A shout out to Greg who came down to lead the 6th graders through that cave tour; he works at Mystery Cave every summer, so if you go back this summer, you may see him!
