Summer Session students arrived one week ago and have already been extremely busy! With Yoga class, soccer, and swimming in the morning, students are staying physically active and enjoying the great weather we have had.
Each week, students will participate in "Vermont Exposures" trips to learn about the history, art, economy, culture, and landscape of Vermont. In the first week, they spent the 4th of July in Richmond, enjoying the parade and exploring the historical Round Church (built in 1812). They also learned a little about the geography of Vermont and, specifically, the Winooski River as they crossed it 8 times and visited the mouth of the river. On Thursday, the Exposures class stayed closer to home, visiting and hiking through the Ethan Allen Homestead and learning about the Colonial history of Burlington. We finished the day with a swim in the lake!
For our first weekend trip, we traveled to Killington, Vermont and stayed at the Hemingway House on Mission Farm. We enjoyed hiking, swimming, and going on the Beast Mountain Coaster at Killington Resort.
Summer Session is off to an amazing start and we can't wait for more adventures!
