Over the past three decades, more than 2,500 students have joined in the adventure of the Sudbury Odyssey at various campsites, all of which have been based on the same goals and similar experiences.
This year, Nixon and Noyes shared their three-day, two-night expedition at Camp Bauercrest in Amesbury. The trip included a visit to Joppa Flats Education and Wildlife Sanctuary on Plum Island as they explored ocean wildlife, LEEP Program (Leadership, Experiential Education and Problem Solving) where they developed trust and team work skills, and the Know Atom Program where they transformed themselves into engineers as they built bridges, solar cars and hover crafts.
Other memorable activities included the Egg Drop Challenge, camp fire sing alongs, duct tape art, Frisbee tosses and “Are you Smarter Than a Fourth-Grader?” parent vs. kids trivia challenge.
