We’ve just arrived home from another wonderful Grade 8 Camp experience at Camp Stillwood. More than 90% of our grade 8 class attended our annual retreat. A tired group of students arrived back at Hugh Boyd last evening after two wonderful but wet days at camp. The kids did everything from arts and crafts to rock climbing and met some wonderful friends and mentors along the way. Special thanks to Ms. Leung, Ms. Korber, Ms. Fleming, Ms. Farrall and Mr. Matheson for joining us as sponsors, and extra special thanks to our 19 senior student leaders who did an outstanding job of organizing and running the program for all of our campers. Well done everyone, the grade 8s had a fantastic time!
