Every year the eighth-grade class takes a three-day trip. This year is was to Sky Ranch in Van, Texas. The class left Wednesday, March 5 and returned Friday, March 7. Sky Ranch is a Christian Camp for kids from six to sixteen. The camp features activities infused with character-building strategies, counselors that are Godly role models and an intentional plan that takes kids from being consumers of God’s word to participants in God’s plan. This trip serves to grow the class closer, teach the students about Christ, learn and have fun. Each day the class participated in fun activities as groups. Upon arrival, the boys and girls are walked to their cabins to settle in then later begin the activities. The students did things like zip-lining, rock climbing, rope swinging, swimming, water slides, nature centers, parties and Bible studies. Eighth-grader Chloe Jones said, “I enjoyed hanging out with everyone. We all bonded in the cabin and during the activities.”
