First Outdoor Ed Outing of the Year

Oaks 1 students led their own hike at Bennett’s Pond Trail in Ridgefield, CT last week. They discovered red newts on the two-mile hike and completed a trust-building exercise. The CFS Outdoor Education Leadership program, in which middle-schoolers participate in nature activities, rock climbing, caving, canoeing, cross country skiing, and other sports, is in its fourth year. Tonya Burchette and Jonathan Hefter are the faculty/staff members who direct the Outdoor Ed program.
