Camp Kieve an Unforgettable Experience

From May 1st to May 3rd, the Freshman and Sophomore girls went to Camp Kieve in Nobleboro, ME. While there, the girls did many group activities that involved working together and leadership. The activities ranged from clap ball, to rock climbing, and the HS swing. The HS Swing brings the rider 50 ft. in the air, and when the rider is ready, they pull a green rope and swing. This was done by all 10 girls plus Mrs. Smith and Ms. J-S. It was the majority of the group’s favorite activity. If given the chance all would go back again!
