The eighth grade spent the week kayaking in the San Juan Islands. They began and ended the week with team building and high ropes challenges at Camp Orkila, and spent Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday sea kayaking from camp to nearby islands. Students built upon their existing outdoor skills as well as learned to navigate on water, gained kayaking expertise, prepared meals, and set up a new camp every night. Their shared adventures also facilitated community building, individual challenge and growth, and new sights around every bend. This was an exciting launch to a great eighth grade year!
