Grade 6s went to Camp Summit, in the Squamish Valley. Here they participated in all sorts of camp activities such as high ropes, low ropes, fire building, mountain biking, big field games and countless other adventures. The girls slept in cabins, and had a huge amount of fun!

Gr. 5s at Sea to Sky Outdoor School
Grade 5s went to Sea to Sky Outdoor School, on the Sunshine Coast. They canoed in huge voyageur canoes, they explored the forest, and learned about the ocean. They took a day trip over to Gambier Island by canoe where they got to explore new beaches and magical mossy fern gullies. The focus of this trip was learning about sustainability. What does that word mean, and what part do we have to play? See the full photo gallery here: desktop | mobile.
