DES was led by Outdoor Education majors from New England College in 4 weeks of outdoor activities on January Wednesday afternoons. Students experienced learning about winter survival, camp cooking, snowshoeing, winter games, building shelters, winter ecology and winter arts and crafts. Great fun was had by all--the students enjoyed it so much, they didn't even realize there was an underlying curriculum and that they were learning a lot!
Pictured below are our own staff snowshoers: Mrs. Talmanson, Mrs. Hast, Mrs. MacNeilly and Mrs. Garnett.

Thank you, New England College!!!!
