On September 13th, NPS 5th and 6th graders and their teachers traveled on two buses to Camp Horizons in Harrisonburg, Virginia. It was a really fun time. We did low ropes, high ropes, farming, archery, canoeing, rock climbing, and we even had a campfire! 6th grader Nelson's favorite activity was canoeing.
When we arrived at camp, we were given a warm welcome by all the wonderful counselors there. Then we loaded our camping gear into two trucks that would take them to our cabins where we would stay for the next two nights. On the first day, we were split up into four groups. These groups did the same activities but at different times. One of our favorite games to play was Gaga Ball, which was played in a 12' by 12' pit. We went to sleep in our cabins. Lights out was between 8:30 p.m. and 9:00 p.m.
On the second day, we were joined by our Head of School, Mr. Lester, for part of the day. On Friday, my group finished off our time there with farming. I believe all the campers can say that they had a wonderful time at Camp Horizons.
