We've Been Camping
.
Our students, staff, and families enjoyed the first camping trip of the season.  We made our annual trip to the Allegheny Front Migratory Observatory in Dolly Sods.  There the students camped, cooked over the fire, observed and learned about the birdbanding process, rock climbed, and generally enjoyed themselves.  Some of our group tried their hands at one aspect of survival camping by building their own shelters for the night.  We hear they were pretty comfortable despite the nighttime rain.  The camping trip is the first of many outdoor training events planned for the year.
