Oakwood 6th and 7th grade students headed out to Mt. Madonna for their annual Oakwood Adventure, where they spent an incredible day bonding. The students were divided into six random groups and were able to make new friends and bond with classmates from last year. They played a variety of team-building games, including Bocce Ball, Frisbee Golf, Cup Stacking, Pass the Bucket (students sit and pass a bucket full of water around in a circle while seated and only using their feet), Fallen Log (two teams start on opposite sides of a log, pass the other group, and end up on the other side without anyone falling off), and Sherpa Walk (a blind trust game where the blindfolded follow the voice of their partners to travel safely through the woods).
After the students participated in the various games, they ate lunch while listening to a story from Ranger Mike. The afternoon concluded with the popular Minute To Win It game: Face the Cookie. Both teachers and students enjoyed the beautiful weather and made lasting memories!
