Sixth Graders Experience Nature

The sixth graders recently enjoyed an overnight retreat experience at Camp Gray. They participated in the Environmental Stewardship Program at the camp near Wisconsin Dells. Although the weather was cool and cloudy, it didn’t dampen the spirits of the sixth graders as they learned about God’s wonder-filled gift of creation.  Combining fun and faith and service, they students reflected on their role as caretakers of creation.

Activities provided opportunities to get close and personal with nature as students explored a stream and a pond, identified invasive plant species (and did something about it!), and closely examine the interconnections of life. 

The students also enjoyed a variety of activities such as canoeing, archery, and “pandaball”.  One of the highlights was the Solo Hike which gave each person some personal time to appreciate and ponder their surroundings.

Teachers Barb Gunnare, Patty Arndt and Linda Sternig, together with DRE Joseph Heit and principal Mike Sternig, joined in the activities and provided additional prayer experiences during the retreat.
