This is an 8-week program put in place to offer unique opportunities and trips while still providing educational support. Our 2016 program consisted of the following subject areas:
Students learned riding skills and finished with a trail ride in the mountains.
Students played outdoor games and sports which required very little equipment, including bocce, horseshoes, ladder golf, Frisbee golf, and other games.
Students went on field trips all over the state, visiting the state capitol, Wyoming state museum, and the historic governor’s mansion to learn about the history of our state.
Students learned to mountain bike using bikes repaired in the vocation ed bike program and finished with mountain biking in the mountains.
FITNESS & REC
Students participated in a stair running competition, worked out in parks, did yoga, went swimming at the Laramie Rec Center, and went bowling.
Fun science labs included blood typing, eggshell geodes, a trip to the UW planetarium, earthquake demonstrations, making rock candy, and other activities.
GARDENS & CRAFTS
Students planted and maintained a garden (plants will be used for culinary arts), made arts and crafts, and did team-building activities
