One thing I love about Campbell County is the way they use their resources for the betterment of youth. One example of this is the 5th grade annual retreat to Mallo Camp in Weston County. Here kids get to enjoy the great outdoors and learn about the wisdom of nature. Our John Paul II Catholic School has jumped on board of this CC tradition and each fall takes up their 5th and 6th graders. Today, fb got to tag along.
The camp is located just on the west side of the Black Hills and is privately owned.
Ms. Bailey packs a lot into 2 1/2 days.
Staff from the school comes up, but we also rely on the help of volunteers. Here Kurt, Dcn. Kim, Jeff, and Scott serve lunch amongst many other jobs.
Canoeing is an all-time favorite.
Botany is a good education as well.
My personal favorite was kickball.
