On December 17 our adventurous 5th – 8th graders headed south for the winter to the Castle Rock area. At the Edge Adventure’s SkyTrek, students explored a 4-story-high ropes course and tested their skills against nearly 120 different obstacles, encouraging one another all the while! Students also enjoyed a hike through Castlewood Canyon where they were able to experience four different Colorado ecosystems. They passed through the valley that was once a reservoir for the Castlewood Canyon Dam, which flooded the city of Denver in 1933 when the dam failed.
