[media-credit id=52 align=”alignnone” width=”300″][/media-credit]Carlmont’s Associative Student Body (ASB) drove up to Four Winds Ropes Course outside of Occidental last Sunday for a two-day, inspirational team-building field trip.

The class of 33 students awoke at 6 o’clock in the morning Sunday to begin the annual field trip to Four Winds.

When they arrived, the class was split into three groups of 11 students to rotate through each activity.

Day one of the trip included a number of “low elements”. These “low elements” were small obstacles that required patience, tenacity, and most of all, teamwork.

“The low elements helped get the group focused and prepared for the next day, and was challenging yet everyone was able to fully participate,” said Claire Porter.

When the events of day one at Four Winds had concluded, ASB made a short 15 minute drive to St. Dorothy’s Rest, California’s oldest camp established in 1901.

At St. Dorothy’s Rest the class took time to reflect on the day. It was a night full of laughter and tears as the ASB class got to know each other better and were able to bond as a family.

Max Mcbride had this to say about the night, “We broke up into groups and did an inspirational team building activity. That activity unified ASB. It allowed me to comprehend people. At first I doubted many of those people, but now I have confidence and believe they have what it takes to succeed.”

On day two it was time for the high elements.

Each group went on two “high elements”, which required trust and strength.

“I felt the high elements had a big impact on personal as well as ASB growth because it was more physically and emotionally challenging than the low elements.” said Porter.

To wrap up all the weekend’s activities the three groups unified as one whole class to participate in one final obstacle.

The challenge: Get every single student above a 14 foot wooden wall without talking.

“The wall symbolized the obstacles we face in ASB and our lives, the way we worked as a team showed that we must work together to succeed,” said Mcbride.

The field trip allowed ASB became a stronger and closer unit. They will implement their learning experiences into their everyday lives at Carlmont in order to make the school a better place.
