FRAMINGHAM – This past weekend, the Christa McAuliffe Charter School’s Outing Club participated in the annual Appalachian Mountain Club Youth Opportunities Program Fall Fest!
The Fall Fest took place September 29 and 30 at the Appalachian Mountain Club’s Outdoor Centre in Russell, Massachusetts.
While camping out in tents at the outdoor center, McAuliffe middle school students, along with other youth groups/outing clubs from schools in the Boston and MetroWest area, had the opportunity to explore nature with a compass.
The McAuliffe students also made baked apples over a campfire.
The Scholars learned about Leave No Trace and participated in team building activities.
The outdoor club members are learned the fine arts of building a one-match fire.
