It was a successful day at High Trails! The students had a great time on both their morning and afternoon discovery groups. Students seemed to learn a lot and enjoy their time out on the trail. The students are bonding well and it is hard to tell that it is still early in the school year – everyone is having a good time together!
After a delicious dinner, students had evening programming. The half of the students that went to the Hoedown last night went to the Interbarn tonight. Highlights from the Interbarn are the freezer, with several frozen birds and snakes (followed by lots of hand sanitizer!), tracks (students learn to move like various animals found around High Trails and Colorado), and fun think (a station of imaginative games, astronaut gloves, and mind puzzles. The students that went to the Interbarn last night went to the Hoedown tonight.
In the morning the students will go on another early morning hike. Rather than going with their cabins, students choose from about 8 hikes to the staff’s favorite points around High Trails. They will get to choose which high point or beautiful scenery spot they want to go to before breakfast. Tomorrow’s discovery groups are all-days. Students will spend the majority of the day in the same discovery group – participating in more activities, understanding their group of people, and even eating lunch on the trail!
We are definitely looking forward to more stories from tomorrow!
