Middle and Senior Students Build Community at Camp Wahanowin
By Atheltics Director Deidre Macpherson
As is tradition at Linden, every other year we venture to overnight Camp Wahanowin with our middle and high school students. This year the grades 7-10 students enjoyed a wonderful week in the fresh northern air challenging themselves to a variety of outdoor educational experiences. Linden students enjoyed activities like kayaking, canoeing, hiking, rock climbing, trapeze, zip-line, team ropes, mountain biking, initiative tasks, archery and tennis. It is always fun to see our students positively encouraging their peers, pushing their physical boundaries and building relationships with all of our community members. Thank you to our students for trying new things and a huge thank you to the amazing faculty who attended and supported our girls endlessly: Beth, Coco, Ellen, Sang, Deanna, Elizabeth WM and Vivian!
