Each year, the Upper Elementary students take an overnight camping trip to Camp Bernie in Port Murray, NJ. This trip offers children an opportunity to gain a sense of independence with the freedom to be themselves, while spending time outdoors and learning more about their natural surroundings. The students experienced rock climbing, a ropes course and archery, as well as team building and other active social education activities. The evening campfire is always a favorite activity. Camp Bernie is one of the highlights of the year and not even a little rain could dampen the students spirits!
