Camp Cougar Field Trips 2009

Camp Cougar Makes a Splash in 2010

Almost 300 cougars have joined us this summer to continued their education by participating in a unique learning adventure. Students kept their skills sharp by reading, writing, and doing math.  A variety of fieldtrip experiences provided students the background information they needed to become better writers.  Students went to Schramm Park and Fontenelle Forest where they learned about critters that are native to Nebraska.  They trekked across the Bob Kerry Walking Bridge and discovered what it might have been like to be Lewis and Clark.  The Henry Doorly Zoo and Gifford Farms exposed our students to places and animals they may have never seen before.  Some students even got a chance to go fishing.  Check out the photos above and judge for yourself the summer of learning, fun, and friendship.

Camp Cougar Summer 2009

Students who attended Camp Cougar were busy reading, writing, doing math, and riding the bus to a number of fun exciting places near Omaha.  We went on hayrack rides, cooked our lunch over a campfire, and sang songs at Shady Lanes.  Farm animals, Kids Challenge and hiking were waiting for us at Gifford Farms.  The zoo offered more than it's regular tour of fun.  We ate a sack lunch, learned about animal coverings, and viewed animal exhibits galore.  Our final trip was to Mahoney State Park for an enjoyable and busy day.  Check out the photos  to see our fantastic adventures.
