Waukee Middle Students Visit Y Camp

On Oct. 9 about 26 sixth, seventh and eighth grade students participated in a field trip to Y Camp in Boone, IA. Y Camp offers a chance to get away from the noise of the everyday environments while delivering the Y message of making a stronger community. Throughout the day, the students participated in six different activities that stressed problem solving skills, team work and being supportive of one another, all in an effort to develop leadership skills. Students were asked to reflect after each activity to determine what they learned about themselves and how it could apply to their everyday lives.
