Camp Sweet showing the wonders of nature to Connect Charter School.
Connect Charter School is well known for its outdoor education program. Every year all grades go on two or more overnight trips. Out of all the camps, Camp Sweet is the most memorable because it is a school tradition to go there. The most special activities to do are the Animal game, fort building and spending time by the lake.
The Animal game is a game where you will be split into different animal groups, and it is played like an animal food chain. Playing the Animal game lets you explore the outdoors and you get to experience the life of an animal. When building a fort, most students work as a group. “What you’re learning in class sometimes affects what you make in the forrest, like fur trading or forming a mini city. It’s a lot of fun to get to know my classmates better.” quoted Elaine. Moreover, in the lake, previous classes have made dams to raise the water level, then other classes can build on top to make it stronger. The dam is the main thing to do at the lake, but there are also tiny minnows to catch and release.
All of the activities kids do at Camp Sweet brings them closer to nature, to their classmates and connects them to the school community. In conclusion, students love Camp Sweet and will definitely go again, they hope Connect keeps this sweet tradition going. Go to www.connectscampsweet.ca
