3:36pm- Buses are unloaded and all students should be headed home!  We look forward to sharing some pictures next week!  Many thanks to all the chaperones who helped make this trip happen!

1:17pm- Students are boarding the buses and should be back at school between 3-3:30pm.  

9:46am - Friday - Things are sunny this morning as students get started with their final activities at Camp Bernie.  We will post here and email home when the buses leave camp after lunch.

5:40pm- Despite the weather, students are enjoying their team building experience at Camp Bernie.  They are currently inside for some free time with sports and games and will soon have dinner, but the afternoon was spent hiking, climbing, and problem solving together.  Students tested their survival skills by building shelters in the woods, negotiated how to get their whole groups from one side of an imagined swamp to another, and helped each other navigate some balancing activities with encouragement and teamwork.  We look forward to sharing some pictures with you soon!

1:30pm - The Class of 2020 arrived at Camp Bernie safely just before lunch time and are heading out to their first activities.
