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”
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.
