6th Grade Camp
Outdoor Education Camp 2014
The campfire dies down, the glow necklaces light up, and the magical wonder continues…… even with an early morning experience of a blood moon lunar eclipse…..
Every Sixth Grade Student from Hartford Jt. #1 School District participated in an exciting three day Outdoor Education experience. From Tuesday, September 30 through Wednesday, October 8, 2014, one hundred eighty – six students from the sixth grade attended a three day Outdoor Education Camp at YMCA Camp Minikani, located on Lake Amy Belle. The program was taught by teachers from Central Middle School accompanied by a staff member from Camp Minikani.
The Sixth Grade Outdoor Education Program combines the best of residential outdoor education – campfire, night hike, team building, and leadership development with a hands-on, environmental science- based curriculum tied to the Wisconsin State Standards. Courses taught during the three day, one night camp include ecology, canoeing, wildlife study, plant adaptation and characteristics, and technology using digital photography, as well as global positioning systems. The Outdoor Education Program allows the sixth grade students to experience and learn about the wonders of our natural world while enhancing their relationship with new classmates at Central Middle School.
