Highlight on 5th Grade Overnight Camping
When interviewed after their experiences, students named different things that were their favorite part:
"I've never been hiking in the woods before and I really loved jumping around on the rocks."
"The food was awesome!"
"It was really cold but it was really pretty out there!"
"I cannot believe I went on a canoe. I didn't think I would have liked something like that, but it turns out I loved it."
"We got to stay up SO LATE! And Dr. Rogers even brought extra Halloween candy with her!"
"Have you ever heard of foosball? I learned how to play this weekend and I'm so good!"
"I had fun with my friends."
"The canoe!!! The canoe, the canoe, the canoe!"
"There were two camp puppies there and they were so cute and fun!"
"I've never had a real life smore with a real life campfire. That was awesome."
"I thought I would miss my video game, but I really didn't care!"
"My parents were all nervous about me going away for the night, but I was like hey guys, I got this. And I really did!"
