9th Grade Everglades Trip Information

Each spring the ninth grade class heads down to the Everglades National Park for a week of tent camping on the bay under the stars, while exploring the unique ecosystems and wildlife of South Florida. The Everglades is the only ecosystem of its kind in America and we are fortunate to be able to study it up close. The students get to see in person what they have studied in their biology classes making this an invaluable educational lesson, while the adventures they have together during the week makes this a wonderful time for building relationships and community together.

The adventures during the week include alligator and crocodile spotting; bird watching; hiking through tropical hardwood forests, sawgrass, and hammocks; canoeing through mangroves; and snorkeling along the coral reef at Key Largo. At the campsite, they cook together, have devotions, and sing around the campfire while stargazing.

This is a wonderful week away from the daily routines and technology in which to marvel at God’s creativity through creation in the great outdoors.
