Following a successful 2015-16 school year and summer session at Bellarmine College Prep, students at Sacred Heart Nativity Schools officially began their summer break following a weekend of camping and outdoor education at Little Basin campground July 22-24.
Rising 7th and 8th grade students, along with Nativity staff members and parent volunteers, welcomed the incoming 6th grade students in the beautiful outdoor environment. Nativity Campus Ministry students led the community in evening prayer and meditation, while parent volunteers prepared wonderful meals for all. It was a true community building experience for the SHNS Community. With new partnerships formed with Latino Outdoors and the WOLF School at Little Basin, students hiked, and learned about various topics relating to the ecosystem and natural environments of Little Basin from WOLF School naturalists.
Latino Outdoors is a unique Latino-led organization. They work to create a national community of leaders in conservation and outdoor education. As part of this work, they are focused on expanding and amplifying the Latino experience in the outdoors; providing greater opportunities for leadership and mentorship.
