We are excited for the annual all-school overnight camping trip this fall. At the heart of the Everest model is the philosophy that a healthy learning environment is based on strong relationships. To that end, starting the year with a camping trip is an excellent way to form new friendships, strengthen existing ones, and develop an overall sense of community culture. Spending time together away from the normal school setting gives students a chance to express skills and interests that may not normally be apparent in a regular day. The experiences that we have on this camping trip will set the atmosphere for the entire year. Please note that the camping trip is mandatory for all students.
