I work with the older kids - who start at 2nd graders and go up to 10-11 year olds - the older kids are called "secondary" kids. Secondary kids are split up into four different rooms: Turquoise, Purple, Lime and Yellow. There are about 24 kids for each of these rooms as well as one Lead Counselor and one "Summer Intern." I am the Lead Counselor in charge of Yellow Room, and my kids range from 8-11 years old.
Okay - now that you have some understanding of what I'm talking about (*hopefully) - I'll tell you about our little excursion. Yellow Room and Lime Room went on a field trip today to the Biosphere (basically a glorified nature park/nature center). The kids had a good time and it was nice to be outside
In the photo above, we are all about 40 feet off the ground, working our way through rope bridges that span the tree tops.
Much to the kids' delight, the rope bridges ended in a massive curly slide. Ms. Megan had the privilege of taking 3 -4 terrified children back down a set of "escape" stairs instead.
The picture above shows the progression of the field trip. By 2:30 pm, all the kids were hot, tired and grumpy. Ms. Megan's the only one still smiling.
