BC: Outdoor Ed. was so incredibly fun.
FC: The Best Trip to Outdoor Ed. Ever. | By: Hannah
1: It was a clear day with bright blue birds chirping and the wind whistling when the giant yellow bus pulled into the Covenant Heights parking lot. All of the kids started screaming and jumping for joy. This was my first memory of Outdoor Ed. On the bus, I worried about three things: was the food going to be any good, were my roommates going to be nice, and were my classes going to be fun and educational. After eating in the Outdoor Ed. dining hall, I realized that the food was really good, the people in my cabin were really nice, and that all of my classes sounded super fun. The thrilling zip line, the scrumptious food and the educational yet fun classes made my Outdoor Ed. trip more memorable than anything else I have ever done.
2: Everyone was having a total blast while all the kids were riding the zip line.
3: I had so much fun hanging with my friends while eating delicious food.
4: Even though all the classes were fun Low ropes was my favorite.
5: The zip line at Outdoor Ed. was so exciting that every kid had a blast doing it. I decided to go down the zip line upside down and backward. One good thing about the zip line is everyone supported one another. For me, gliding down the zip line was not scary at all but for other kids it was super frightening because they are scared of heights. I was actually surprised by how fast the zip line went down. The Covenant Heights zip line was a whopping 900 ft long. Even though I loved riding the zip line, the food was very tasty.
6: The zip line was a thin line of steel cable which was a whooping 900ft long.
7: My friend Lenna was excited, yet very nervous and thought she might fall off, like almost every body else.
8: I was so excited for the zip line and I wasn't even scared the tiniest bit.
9: The food at Outdoor Ed. was magnificent. The first morning I was there for breakfast I had biscuits, yogurt, and cereal. The next morning I had pancakes, yogurt, and cereal. The first lunch I ate was a salad and a roll and then the second day I was there I had a salad and pizza. The first dinner I had was a salad and the second night I had a salad with a burrito. I had dessert twice, a chocolate chip cookie, and a dessert pizza. Almost everyone truly enjoyed the food. They enjoyed it so much that they told Mr. McDowell he needed to hire Dave as a cook at Prairie Crossing. Dave was the cook at Covenant Heights. After every enjoyable meal, we would continue on to fun classes.
10: Sixth grade was not expecting to be made pancakes.
11: There were tons of meat to choose from on the night of the burrito bar.
12: No matter what different kind of pizza people were eating all of of them were delicious and tasty.
13: Outdoor Ed. offered many fun classes for students. In my perspective the 5 most fun classes were the zip line, map and compass, water ecology, geology and low ropes. Each class has it's own special purpose. The zip line's purpose was to learn to face your fears and do the unthinkable. The focus of map and compass was to learn how to read a map. Water ecology had it's own purpose which was to learn about and try to identify microinvertebrates. Geology focused on learning about how mountains came to be and learning about plate tectonics. Low ropes has the most important purpose of them all because it's purpose was to work together and learn how to work as one. No matter what the focus was, all of the classes were extremely entertaining.
14: The zip line was a truly exciting experience with the wind blowing back your hair and your friends cheering them you on.
15: My friend Lexi was holding rope so other students could get across the fake lava pit.
16: In my water ecology class my group had to get in the river and look for microinvertabrates in the rain.
17: Dr. Seuss said, “Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.” Outdoor Ed.'s zip line was like the ride Tower of Terror because they were both exciting and surprising. The food was so tasty it danced across my taste buds. The classes were both enjoyable and educational. Covenant Heights was the best experience anyone could ever wish for.
18: There were a giant brown elk walking thought the Rocky Mountain National park.
19: During our Hawk Quest class we got to learn about all kinds of birds from all over the world
20: Me and Lauren had won our map and compass game by a lot.
