This past weekend, the class of 2019 went on the annual Senior Survival trip to Glacier View Ranch. The trip consisted of various team activities, survival skills, and worships every morning and night. Although it may seem like a nice break from classes, the trip required hard work; we made our own shelters, cooked our own breakfasts and dinners, used an outhouse, and hardest of all, learned to trust our entire class.
“My favorite activity was the nitro-crossing,” said three-year senior Conner Cizek, “we all had to come together and think about how we were gonna get across, but eventually our team got it accomplished.” Other activities such as the spider-web, where a group had to get across a “spider-web” without touching the string, taught our whole class how to work as a team.
The spiritual theme for senior survival was memories. Each senior had the chance to tell his or her favorite memories, how God has used us, and a prayer that God has answered. Jessica Singon, two-year senior, responded that the most important lesson she learned through the trip was, “My broken history shouldn’t shape my future.”
Overall, Senior Survival was a great opportunity to grow closer to God, and to learn more about our classmates. All the seniors would like to give a huge thank you to our class sponsors, Dan Philpott, Zeca and Cindy Santana, as well as Pastor Esequias, Kent Kast, and Steve and Wendy Eickmann for all the hard work they put into the trip. We wouldn’t have been able to survive without you!
