6th Grade ESP Camp

Each year the sixth graders participate in an overnight experience at Camp Gray near Wisconsin Dells.  The camp provides an Environmental Stewardship Program (ESP) during which the participants learn about nature and the beauty of God’s creation.  They also become more aware of the role of being a good steward, or caretaker, of what God has created and shared with us.

Favorite activities included marsh madness, alien invasion (you have to ask a sixth grader about that), and exstream hike. The usual evening campfire was rained out this year, but the sixth graders still enjoyed skits by the program staff and s’mores. Participants reflected on ways that they could be a better steward of God’s creation and signed a banner as a sign of their pledge.

Back at school, the students shared times during camp when they felt God’s presence in a special way and imagined what it would be like to be St. Francis and talk to plants and animals.

Thanks to teachers Barb Gunnare and Patty Arndt and religious education director Joseph Heit for sharing their time to make the ESP possible.
