On Friday October 27, 2017 physical education teacher Ron Simms of Long Range Academy held the school’s first indoor Tent City for students in grades 4 to 6. It was indoor camping in fine style. Tents were set up with air mattresses and sleeping bags, while outside were camping chairs to relax in.
The students took part in Halloween Fear Factor, fish pond and other fun activities, including hot chocolate by the campfire! They also participated in Nature’s Symphony, where students listened to a nature CD and wrote about the images they visualized, and Nature’s Forensic Scientists, an activity that had students view an object found in nature and determined the animal that could have made the object into its current form. The school guidance councillor also shared two great campfire books that aided in the stories and wind down for the night. In the morning pancakes and juice were enjoyed by all before packing up and heading home.
