Ninth graders took a trip to Terrapin Adventures this week in Maryland. The annual event includes outdoor activities like low and high ropes courses. Aerial adventure guides instructed students about outdoor survival, climbing, team-building and understanding and protecting the ecosystem in the Chesapeake Bay watershed. Next week the fifth graders head to Calleva for another outdoor climbing experiences. Many students cite these outdoor events as a chance to develop a shared identity and trust between their classmates and build a feeling of belonging.
