Our Trip to Barrier Island!

Barrier Island was a blast! The Prospect 5th Grade AIG went on a three day trip to Saint Christopher Camp and Conference Center. These students participated in many activities, such as: crabbing, seining, hiking and playing. During this time, the students were learning too!

The trip to Saint Christopher was approximately a four hour drive. When the students got there, the activities soon began.

Students say the food was the best! The cafeteria served their food “southern style.” The tables were assigned waiters/waitresses and housekeepers. The jobs were hard work, but a lot of fun.

Night activities included campfires, games and playing at the rec hall. At the campfire, students sang songs and watched and performed plays. A lot of people thought that was the highlight of their trip.

In the morning, students were to be in the cafeteria by 8:00. There were many activities and before they knew it, it was time for bed. Lights out at 10:00!

So now you know what Barrier Island was all about. It was a fun learning experience for all the AIG students.
