“Freshman Focus Camp” 2018

On September 25th and 26th, FRC’s Educational Talent Search program hosted an overnight “Freshman Focus Camp” for 9th graders from Portola and Loyalton high schools. Thirty-two PHS students took part in the many exciting and challenging activities at Grizzly Creek Camp near Portola and spent time looking to their future educational and career plans

Student Feedback About the Camp

Here are some of the responses the students gave at the end of camp when they were asked to complete the following sentence:

This experience…….

· was awesome because it was fun and after all the elements we had time to reflect and talk about all the things it symbolized.

· Was fun because it challenged me both physically and mentally and it was also very exciting.

· made me realize how I needed to shape up and take responsibility in my life.

· awesome because it uses fun ways to make a major influence on our brain to help us realize what we want to do after high school.

· was fun because everyone had something to do and everyone was involved.

· was eye-opening because it taught me to trust my friends and other people and also taught me to ask for help when I need it.

· was interesting because I got to think about everything in a new way and got to think about things not many people think about.

· was great because I loved my group and how we worked together and I wish we could stay longer so we can get to know each other just a little more.

· was amazing because I got to become closer with my classmates and learn to communicate with others. I also liked that we got to talk about our future.

· was fun because I gained new bonds with classmates and learned a little about myself.

· was good because I learned communication skills and what obstacles I need to overcome.

· was helpful because it just made me look at things through a different perspective.

· Was educational because it taught us how you can’t always accomplish a goal without a little bit of help.
