The Philip W. Sugg Middle School seventh grade students went on a trip to Camp Kieve. Students were at the Camp from Monday, March 17 through Friday, March 21. Students arrived at 10:15 a.m. on Monday morning and got back home at 1:30 Friday afternoon.

Campers had to attend various classes relating to relationships, adventures, teambuilding and skills. Some of the classes were challenging and students needed support from their peers. Skills classes were about what kids get out of not smoking and doing alcohol vs. how they get in trouble and risky behaviors when smoking, doing alcohol, bullying, vandalizing and stealing. Teambuilding class were about working together and helping people out.

The Relationships class was about how to be nice and not bully other people. The Adventure class was about helping and supporting other people and to challenge you by choice. As a student reporter for Academic Advocate, and an attendee of the Camp, the experience was one to learn several lessons geared toward personal growth and to have fun.
