Senior Optional Camping Biking Trip takes Students through two Provinces

From September 24th to 26th, 19 secondary 4 and 5 students took part in their outdoor education experience. The students along with Mr. Leone, Mr. Nantel and Mr. Fequet camped for two nights at Voyageur Provincial Park in Ontario. This year for the first time, biking was introduced as the main activity. The big challenge for the students was Friday’s bike excursion of 55 kilometers that lead them through the towns of Hawkesbury, Grenville, Carillon, Pointe Fortune and back to the park. Highlights of the ride were crossing through two provinces, the Carillon hydroelectric dam, and taking the ferry to PointeFortune. Everyone successfully completed the loop and had lots of fun taking pictures along the way. Other activities that the students participated in were swimming, football and a hike in the park on Saturday morning to wrap up the trip.
