RPA 8th Graders Attend Outdoor School on the Oregon Coast

Earlier this month, RPA Middle eighth-graders went to outdoor school at Twin Rocks Friends camp near Rockaway Beach along the Oregon coast.

They attended in two groups from September 12-16, each group spending two nights and three days at camp. Students learned  about various sea creatures, were able to interact with crabs, octopus and starfish. They also dissected a shark and sand dollars and learned about tides and waves. Students also learned survival skills like rope tying and fire starting.

Each night they had s’mores by the fire, had a sand castle building competition and sang songs around the fire.  Students overcame fears by trying out the extreme swing, launching themselves off the cliff into the forest below.
