Fifth & Sixth Grade Trip Report

Friends School of Minnesota 5th and 6th graders had a great three night trip to YMCA Camp St. Croix and to Lake Country School Land School in Wisconsin. The focus was environmental education but as with all school trips, everyone learned so much more about working together, communicating, and building community.
