Developing leadership skills, bonding as a class, and gaining confidence, independence, and maturity, are some of the outcomes from the sixth graders trip to Camp Manitowa. Challenges pushed students out of their comfort zone to realize that they possess the strength, courage, and support to face any obstacle they may come across. All students were called to personal challenge as they successfully climbed the 50 foot high ropes course and experienced the lake by swimming, canoeing, and kayaking. Team building and bonding was evident through low ropes challenges and playing team sports such as gaga ball and capture the flag. Some student comments include, "I faced my fear of heights. I didn't think I could do it, but I am ready to climb the tower again!" and "I learned how much my class really cares for each other. We have each other's backs!"
