Friends School of Minnesota 8th graders had a great week canoeing and camping in the BWCA with YMCA Camp Menogyn. The ice was out, the bugs were light, and they even got some sun. Paddling and portaging together is a perfect culmination of  all their years of progressive education, learning by doing and in community. We are very proud of them!

Our 18 soon-to-be-graduates went on trail in three groups.

Next up, graduation. Then the FSMN Class of 2013 disperses to 8 different public and independent high schools. We will miss them!
