All Kinds of News for September 12, 2018
Weekends at Summit Prep are packed full of activities for the students. Montana is a beautiful place to hike, fish and bike. The area is also rich with opportunities to engage in community events.
Recently a group of Summit Prep students participated in the Great Fish Challenge 5k Color Run. This is an annual Whitefish, Montana fundraising event for area nonprofits. The race was called a "color run" because throughout the course participants had the opportunity to be a target for nontoxic color powder. The Summit Prep students did a great job with two of the students placing first in their age category.
In addition to the race, the event offered a vendor fair where people could get information about the various nonprofits in the area. Summit students talked with many of the organizations and learned how they might be able to volunteer with them in the near future. There were also many experiential activities for everyone to try. For example, the Ravenwood Organization, which specializes in connecting youth and families to nature, offered some fun stations. Some Summit students demonstrated their bow- and hand-drill skills at the fire making stations and others enjoyed working with the giant raven puppet kites.
All in all, it was a great day for Summit Prep students to be out in the community practicing the skills they have learned on campus.
