Camp Cedarwood 2018

On a blustery Tuesday morning the Grade 8's loaded the buses and headed out to Camp Cedarwood in Lac du Bonnet, Manitoba. They arrived safely, and although the weather turned a bit chilly, they came back on Thursday with tired smiles on their faces and reports of having had a good time despite the cold. We are grateful to the teachers, to the parent volunteers, and to the staff at Cedarwood who made sure that the students were safe, well cared for, and having a good time, as well as learning something about outdoor education. Also thanks to the students who represented our school well with good behavior, being respectful, responsible and safe outside of the regular school environment.

Some Cedarwood Memories!
