The lake area had a beach and swimming toys and trampoline out in the mouth of the cove. Here the staff lifeguards were swimming these sections out. The last swimmers helped by swimming the sections back at the end of our afternoon swim.

BackgroundEdit

The 5th graders have taken a camping trip for years, as part of the science study at Pittsburgh Phillips K-5. Mr. Mass and Mrs. P are the two teachers that lead the trip with the help of a couple of others.

The trip was held for the second year at Emma Kaufmann Camp outside of Morgantown, West Virginia. The school trip makes for a rental to the camp, owned by the Pittsburgh, Jewish Community Center.

In 2009, 32 students and four adults were on the trip. The camp staff also helped with some of the activities.
