Ninth graders return from Everglades trips with Outward Bound

RE's ninth graders have completed their annual treks to the Everglades, the five-day, four-night adventures with Outward Bound that are a 40-year tradition at RE. Departing in three waves, ninth graders traveled in January to the Ten Thousand Islands National Wildlife Refuge, where they set off from different locations in small groups, tasked with finding their way back to base camp. They used compasses and maps to navigate canoes through mangrove tunnels, stormy weather and high winds. RE physical education teacher Tim McAllister oversaw the adventures, and ensured that students prepared during their PE classes.
