Elementary Camping / Community Trip
May 23 – May 24 all-day

Elementary-age students practice the independence and confidence they’ve built throughout the year in a new setting with new challenges at Camp Ernst. Students receive encouragement and cheers of support from teachers, classmates and parent chaperones as they wobble across rope bridges, glide through treetops on zip lines and rope swings, ring bells on climbing walls, paddle kayaks, and more. It’s a wonderful time to get to know one another better on this 2-day and 1-night adventure while watching students’ confidence soar as they reach one milestone after another.

Both the lunch and the celebration should be over by 1:00.

All preprimary children will need to be taken home at 1:00. Ex-Day will not be available for preprimary children that day.
