Memorial Middle School sixth graders are at outdoor school this week. The new program is funded by the Oregon Lottery as part of Measure 99, passed by voters in 2016.
Outdoor school runs from May 14-18. It is at Camp Harlowe in Eugene and was developed in cooperation with the Calapooia Watershed Council. Students are chaperoned by Memorial parents and staff and assisted by 40 high school camp counselors from South Albany and West Albany High School.
It is a busy week for these students. Activities include crafts, team activities, skis and educational programs.
