Saint Stephen School Summer Camp spent a beautiful Wednesday at Sleeping Giant State Park. Our campers hiked over a mile and a half to the top of Sleeping Giant to reach the stone tower observatory, known as “The Castle”. There, they enjoyed a picnic lunch and took in the beautiful scenery. Looking out the “Castle Windows”, campers saw gorgeous views of Long Island Sound, New Haven and neighboring towns. This past week, campers also enjoyed Zumba class, a day at Basset Field, a visit from the Regional Water Authority where they discovered just “How does water get to your house?” as well as other hands-on experiments. They also enjoyed a morning of Duckpin Bowling at Johnson’s Bowling Lanes.

Today is your day.
You’re off to Great Places!
You’re off and away!

You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself
any direction you choose.
You’re on your own. And you know what you know.
And YOU are the one who’ll decide where to go.

~”Oh, The Places You’ll Go”, Dr. Seuss
