Wilderness Trip Fall 2015!
Dear VSSA Parents,
We are super excited for our annual “all-school” Wilderness trip to kick-off the 2015-2016 academic year. This three day camping trip, occurring Wednesday August 19th to Friday August 21st, will be hosted at the Steve Fossett Spirit of Adventure Ranch (SOAR), located on the Colorado River at the Sweetwater Road junction. Your student will have amazing opportunities to participate in both individual class and all-school activities and adventures both on and off the premises over the course of the three days. Click here to download the complete itinerary and packing list.
Fall Sports Opportunities
Any students who are interested in fall sports can contact their local and neighborhood schools about what they have.
Vail Mountain School specifically has sent this information to us. Anything else the school gets in the future will be shared here.
