I was thinking about a trip I took when I was in 6th grade.
We left Friday morning and got back Sunday afternoon. It was called Outdoor Education.
We made dream catchers, learned about bees, went a scavenger hunt, it was on an abandoned military base, with four barracks- boys stayed in two, girls stayed in two... all sorts of fun things, all the 6th graders in the town. It was a great time, and I still reminisce about it from time to time.
Also, it didn't cost my parents anything. It was free.
So, I am moving back to that town, wondering if they still do it, because I would love for my LOs to have that experience, when they are that age. Still a ways off, though, my oldest is almost 8.
So, my question is- would you let your kids go? Or is that a field trip you would have to say no to?
