CLARYVILLE, NY -- The Class of 2024 at The Wardlaw + Hartridge School in Edison enjoyed a wonderful four-day trip to Frost Valley in Claryville, NY last week.

The sixth graders, who were accompanied by chaperones Tanda Tucker of Bernardsville, Andrea Barnett of Morganville, Kirstin Rogers of Parlin and Dina Congregane of Scotch Plains, experienced many adventures and took advantage of opportunities for growth while connecting with nature.

Trip highlights included hiking to a cable bridge, investigating the pond ecosystem, learning about apples, picking them from an orchard and taking turns putting apples into a traditional cider press and turning the crank.

The students and chaperones also completed a service project in the garden, which needed harvesting and weeding. They also learned about maps and orienteering. Last, but not least, they gathered around a campfire to sing songs, tell stories and, of course, make and eat S'mores!
