It's a bit quiet up in Morrow House. That's because it's Adventure Week at the Elisabeth Morrow School; students and teachers are away on trips.
Fifth Grade: takes three separate day trips;
1) West Point to study the Revolutionary War history of the area,
2) The Alpine Boat Basin for river study along the Hudson and then a hike along the Palisades,
3) A Revolutionary-War-era-style cookout on school grounds.
Sixth Grade: heads to Connecticut with Nature's Classroom, an organization that mixes the study of environmental science with group building activities.
Seventh Grade: goes to YMCA Camp Bernie in Hackettstown for a trip involving low ropes activities, rock climbing, hiking and rappelling.
Eighth Grade: heads out on a camping trip with Project USE in Northwest New Jersey. The trip involves high ropes activities, zip lines and hikes, while learning to cook their own meals and practicing "leave no trace" camping.
