Starting an Adventure!

Students traveled to Camp Pine Crest for two days in completion of the Duke of Edinburgh bronze award. On this trip they learned navigation, camping skills and teamwork.

Good Morning

After a great hike yesterday students and staff made camp on the Pine Crest lakes. Our Duke of Ed students learned how to build a fire and enjoyed s’mores! A nice hike this morning back to camp completed our adventure!

Almost There!

Beautiful lunch spot for our UYS Duke of Ed crew!

Working Together

Our Duke of Ed students spent a few days up at Pine Crest and started their day with initiation games!
