Seniors to leave for class trip today

Cam Nixon, Staff

The Class of 2019 kicks off the home stretch to graduation with the annual class trip.  

A group of 64 seniors and eight chaperones will drive one hour and 30 minutes to the Hulbert Outdoor Center in Fairlee, Vt.

The students are spending two nights and one full day on a lake enjoying a host outdoor events, including a ropes/obstacle course, bonfires and other outdoor events. 

In the case of rain, there’s an indoor recreation room.

Students depart at 1 p.m. today and will return on Sunday between 11 a.m. and noon, said senior class advisor Mrs. Ficken.

Seniors will have the chance to bond for one last time as a class and relieve the stress of their last three weeks of high school.

“The idea of going was always interesting to me,” said senior Josie Stottlar. “This, hopefully, will give me some time away from school so I can hangout with my class.”

The featured activity on Saturday is the ropes/obstacle course.

“At first it was undecided if we were gonna be able to have everyone do it,” said senior Sam Norris. “But they just announced that there will be three groups going to do the ropes course, instead of limiting to just one.”

Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be provided by Hulbert Center, and students will sleep in cabins according to gender.
