Fifth Graders Go Camping

Taking water samples. Hailey Elementary 5th graders had an adventurous start to the year.  Our 5th grade students and teachers spent 3 days and 2 night at beautiful Idaho Basecamp (IBC) on Trail Creek Rd outside of Mackay.  The students participated in a variety of outdoor educational lessons and activities.  They searched the Big Lost River for quartz, granite, and sandstone; learned to build a fire from just tinder; worked cooperatively to build shelters, and documented some experiences in personal journals. The students practiced and  embraced the 3 IBC  goals:  Personal responsibility, Courage, and Respect for all.
