What do students take home from field camp?
What did you learn about yourself and getting along as a group in the outdoors?
I learned what it’s like to collaborate on duties and how to shift my perspectives.
I’m a good leader, but sometimes I need to let others lead as well.
I’ve learned that we have to respect everyone and how to work as a group.
I learned that I can be friends with people outside of my friend group.
I learned that teamwork is the key to survival.
What did you learn that you can take home to help care for your own community and natural places?
There are a lot of ways I can conserve and things I can save and still use before I throw away. I learned to respect every living thing, even the tiny bugs.
To treat every living thing with kindness.
I learned that sometimes to preserve something it’s better to leave it alone.
