FRIDAY FOLDER mable campus october 29

Outdoor Science Camp 
On October 11th, our sixth grade students went to Outdoor Science School in the San Bernardino Mountains.  The students departed Monday morning and arrived shortly before noon.  Little did they know what would be in store for them over the next week.  Upon their arrival, students joined their cabin instructors and fellow cabin mates, and the week was on its way.
The week consisted of hiking along exciting trails that provided the students with an opportunity to learn about the forest and animal life surrounding them.  On these hikes, knowledge was taught and information was shared by teachers, instructors, and students.  The hiking highlights of the week included the Night Hike and the Astronomy Hike, which allowed the students to explore the wilderness trails by means of their rarely-used night vision.

In addition to the outdoor activities, students also performed in skits and attended a hoedown.  Skit night, where each cabin performed a skit based on the theme of the week, "Out of this World!"   produced some hilarious acts that involved crazy costumes and wild personalities.  Rumor has it that the Fairmont teachers produced, directed, and starred in their own little skit involving a candy store and a few suckers! At the hoedown, the students kicked up their heels and did some line dancing.  The students smiled and joked as they learned new dances while stumbling and bumbling to the music.

Outdoor Science School is part of the sixth grade curriculum.  It gives the students the opportunity to learn in a majestic setting six thousand five hundred feet above sea level.  A diverse range of topics including geology, astronomy, and ecology are studied throughout the entire week. 
Working together is a key theme at Outdoor Science School.  In the cabins and at meals, students are asked to put away thoughts of "me" and to start thinking about "us." It is truly a memorable week that the students reminisce about the entire year.
