On March 11, the Academy’s fifth graders trekked to Camp Timberline for three days of fun and challenging activities geared to build teamwork as well as self-confidence.
While the students enjoyed the low ropes segments, including the “Mohawk Walk” and “Wild Woosey,” and the 7 a.m. “Polar Bear” swims, it was the individual activities on the high ropes, “Multi-Vine” course and the 24-foot tall Climbing Wall that were the highlights of the trip.
During the Multi-Vine challenge, the students individually navigated a course suspended in the treetops, forcing them to push themselves and overcome fears. Amazingly, all 48 fifth graders attempted and completed the Vine course!
Teacher Susan Phllips remarked, “The students faced their fears head-on, and they all succeeded! They returned from Camp with a better perspective of themselves and a better appreciation of the fact that they are one class!”
