Flintridge Prep 7th Graders Goes on a Camping Trip

Flintridge Prep 7th graders’ trip has gotten off to a great start. The campsite at El Capitan is picturesque! It overlooks the ocean, and the whole camp is sleeping to the sound of crashing surf. The students assembled their own tents and had lots of free time to play games, get to know each other, and explore the area in their hiking groups. After dinner, the students took a twilight walk to the beach to check out the night sky. The Milky Way is visible! Camping introduces students to new experiences, possibly an activity they’ve been meaning to try but have never got around to. There is plenty of research that suggests tackling new challenges and experiences can keep their brains healthy, as they force students to think for themselves. Better yet, they can enhance self-confidence, growth, and happiness.
