Each year, all ninth and tenth grade students participate in an overnight field experience designed to build confidence, improve communication, and strengthen bonds with classmates. The time away from campus is a great opportunity for students to work together to confront new situations and to reach common goals. This annual excursion is held at Camp Burgess in Sandwich, MA. The camp offers opportunities to build trust and teamwork through outdoor activities, environmental studies, and adventure. Teachers chaperone the event and work with the camp staff on activities and team-building. More information about the program is available on the Camp Burgess website.
