This morning is starting now off a little damper and grayer, but the kids are still excited. After breakfast, it's team building or outdoor survival skills, then we make our back downhill to home sweet home. Please meet us at the the front of the school at 1:00pm. If your kiddo has meds with us, please pick them up from Mr. Gallagher at 12:45.
We arrived at Sprague Lake around 11:30am, used the restrooms, and we were off. After learning about the lake and the types of trees in the moraine, we headed down hill to find our lunch spot. A lots of kiddos found some good spots on some boulders and chowed down. From there it was a fun, muddy, and sometimes rainy hike to our dorm at the YMCA.
You can feel the excitement in the air here at Bethke in the 5th grade wing! ECO Week starts Wednesday morning.
Student will arrive bright eyed and bushy tailed at 8:30am and meet in the lunch room. We will leave Bethke at 9:00 for the trip up the Big Thompson Canyon to the YMCA of the Rockies in Estes Park.
Over the three days, students will experience some of the best Colorado and the YMCA of the Rockies have to offer in hikes, outdoor living skills, ropes course adventures, and more!
Be sure to check in here at the Bethke 5th grade ECO Week 2015 Blog for up-to-the-minute updates on what our 5th grade adventurers are up to.
This year's ECO-Week is May 20th - 22nd at the YMCA of the Rockies in Estes Park, CO. We use our cell phones to make updates and as you know, reception can be difficult, but we will try our best. Our cabins have WiFi so we will be able to post photos each evening.
