Caving, Ziplining are Highlights of 6th Grade Camping Trip
Posted 05/01/2018 09:39AM

Barnesville sixth graders had a great time at Camp Horizons in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley. A milestone for Middle School students, the annual two-night camping adventure includes outdoor team-building and personal challenge activities.

While it rained the first day, the entire group went caving, which turned out to be the most popular activity. Later, they spent time on the zipline and giant swing on the Ropes Course. The second night, the group played some fun field games, including one where the teachers (Ms. Eargle and Mr. Gonzalez) were both blindfolded, and the students had to direct then toward objects in the field. Ms. Eargle said that the kids had so much fun playing “Gaga Ball” that they want to build an octagon-shaped “Gaga Ball” pit on campus!

Students slept in platform tents, got covered in mud, and made memories that will last a lifetime.
