Elements Rocks! (and rafts, and hikes, and canoes…)

Jeffrey Jewett – May 10, 2013

Sign up for Elements as your fall co-curricular today! Same awesome activities that students have enjoyed for years, now moved to the Fall. (Autumn leaves! Better weather!) Elements is a rigorous and adventurous co-curricular, where students will have a chance to explore the beautiful outdoors around Deerfield in an active way. We will teach you how to hike, camp, backpack, canoe, whitewater raft, and rock climb. We will explore our surrounding environment making attempts to identify plants and animals, and you will learn basic skills to be safe and smart in the outdoors, such as fire building, map reading & navigation, and leave-no-trace ethics. No experience necessary, but a positive attitude and sense of adventure are required.
