Outdoor Education a Hit!

by on March 24, 2011, under Education

Teachers and students alike enjoy the fun

Outdoor Education at Camp Kulaqua provided students with three days of  fun and varied learning experiences this year. With a science theme, our fifth through eighth-graders learned about alternating and direct currents, made flashlights, studied noctural animals, rode horses, and discovered the hair-raising effects of the Van de Graaff generator.

“My students will never forget this experience,” says Vicki Turner, one-room school teacher from Winter Haven. “They look forward to it all year long and talk about it for months after!”

“KNOTTING NICE-EXTREME KNOTTING TYING”

E-TRACKER EVENT

MARCH 20, 2011

 

Another great success with the E-Tracker Event held at Markham Park.  We had 105 pathfinder e-trackers energized.   The day started with hands on learning the different knots used for building.  These skills were later used to build a bridge.  The day ended with adults and pathfinders coming together in a hula hoop contest.   Judith Mullings, from the Eliathah Church, you did a great job with your hula hoop.  

 

Thank you Scott and Arylis Fortier for leading out.      Dwayne, Martha Lewis and team, job well done.  Let’s do it again next year.
