    It was a pure pleasure for me to accompany the 7th & 8th graders to Wolf Ridge. As a parent of a 7th grader, I am often “discouraged” from going to the 2nd floor of the building. So, I don’t often get a chance to experience the camaraderie between students at Friends. In both large and small group gatherings, I was struck by how students encourage, support and check on each other. The very high ropes course is, in part, designed to challenge students and have other group members support them. But, there were many other times I saw students helping each other. They helped each other cross the river at Tettegouche, waited for each other when someone was hiking slower or was slogged down in the “sticky” mud. There were tears and hugs of support when students were acutely feeling the loss of Alex. And there was a great deal of laughter among students and teachers. The 7th and 8th graders are remarkable people and I feel lucky that I got a chance to know them and participate in this trip. Sarah Bauer
