The 6th graders had the opportunity to adventure to Snake Road for our usual overnight trip this year. Our students had the freedom to escape the stresses of everyday life and disconnect from technology for a few days. The outdoor education program at Snake Road is student-centered to enhance their learning and growth together, ultimately creating a closely bonded class community through their shared experiences. These activities included team building, problem solving, hiking, archery, swimming, canoeing, high ropes courses, rock climbing, and zip-lining. The Snake Road Outdoor Education program provides a powerful team building experience which allows our students to build relationships, challenge themselves, build confidence, and gain independence. This is my favorite field trip of the year, because it allows me to build relationships with my students and support them when needed. I am always amazed by our students GRIT. I would like to thank all of our wonderful volunteers that helped chaperone the sixth trip this year. It would not have been possible without you! Can’t wait till next year!
“Don't lose your footing or grip on the rocks you will slip. Because when you are up high it can be scary but the way down zipping it was a blast!” M. Pritchard
“I loved everything about Snake Road, the activities, the food and trying new things. Thank you, Snake Road staff!” R. Lacefield
“My favorite part was high ropes because it is a good chance to face your fears.” H. Heiss
“Snake road was really fun with the swimming and high ropes courses. They were a test of strength and it was lots of fun.” A. Eissner
“My favorite part about Snake Road was climbing the indoor rock wall because it was really challenging but I still made it to the top on my last try.” A. Morris
“Zip-lining was scary, but when I went I felt like I was flying in the forest.” K. Shea
“I really enjoyed canoeing because I had never done it before. When you're in the canoe it feels like you are going to tip even though you probably won't tip and the adrenaline feels so good.” E. Shimp
