The school year ended with a bang. I accompanied my sixth graders to three days of outdoor education at Camp Colman. It was the first year in many that we took the sixth grade to camp. It turned out well and I am sure it is the start of a new tradition. We weren't sure about scheduling it the last week of school, but it turned out to be a nice closure to their elementary school experience. The camp staff led the students through classes as a varied as squid dissection to a vertical playpen (climbing challenge) I was fortunate enough to sleep in command central and leave the boys cabins to the parent chaperones. Camp Colman is a great facility on Case Inlet with a private lagoon for boating and swimming. The week ended with a celebration (graduation). Another school year in the books.
