Gr. 8 trip to Frontier Lodge!
Gr. 8's along with their teachers and parent chaperones enjoyed a two day adventure at Frontier Lodge last week. Students participating in a variety of outdoor activities such as:  climbing/rappelling, hiking, caving and canoeing.  Devotional time focused on the students' relationships with Jesus Christ as well as digging deeper into their classroom themes "Seeking the Truth" and "Things Unseen".  
It was a great trip!    A special thank you to our bus driver and chaperones!
