Fall Camp


Sept. 17

The middle schoolers seemed very excited about Fall Camp this year. I heard reports that some were “unable” to sleep Wednesday night. They were so excited! Students built relationships and learned about leadership and teamwork while tackling competitions and other tasks. They really enjoyed their “escape room” activity and, as always, many like the games! Help them get good rest this weekend to be ready for next week's classes!
