"We prepare students to engage in the world that is and to help bring about a world that ought to be."

The Great Outdoors

This fall Grade 8 students traveled with their advisors to Camp Mason, NJ, staying overnight in cabins on the campgrounds. The Middle School trip is a longstanding tradition and an important event for Friends Seminary eighth graders. It is a chance for our students to get to know each other and their advisors and teachers in different ways by working and doing a variety of activities together. The trip focuses on building community and communication skills and helps the class to develop a sense of leadership and responsibility for themselves and each other. 

Rehka ‘28 explains, “I was able to step out of my comfort zone and be one with nature. I was able to form deeper connections with my classmates and get to know more about the people around me. I tried new activities, some that were challenging and fun.”
