Our outdoor adventures middle school athletics team spends all fall in the woods learning how to read maps, vault over logs, build endurance, and bond in nature. This week some of our lower grades got to experience some OA excitement with a sampling of activities.

First graders played tree tag and worked on a scavenger hunt, proving sure-footed and observant on uneven terrain. Meanwhile, our third and fifth graders tried their hand at building cairns—rock formations above the treeline that allow hikers to follow the trail. Our third grade group also practiced hand signals that would make communication in the woods more efficient and much quieter, all the better to experience the bounty of sensory information available when we explore the outdoors. It was adventurous indeed.
