Camp Wawona staff were up early on Thursday, Nov. 12, 2009. Leaving camp at 5:30 A.M., they set out for Fresno Adventist Academy to host the first ever Camp Wawona Outdoor School Expo. Close to 120 students grades 5-8 represented several Central California Conference schools as they participated in a morning worship service and then split into smaller, 16-person groups for various team building/experiential learning elements.
Each of the seven elements (team-building games) taught students the essential skills of teamwork and leadership as well as other life lessons reviewed in short debrief sessions following each element. Poor weather forced the groups indoors but students, faculty, and Camp Wawona staff alike enjoyed the day, sampling what the new Camp Wawona Outdoor School will offer. Pictures of the event are posted below.
