Campion’s 2022-2023 Student Association (SA) officers organized their final task; hosting our annual end-year SA Picnic, which was held at North Lake Park this past Sunday, providing students with a fantastic opportunity to unwind and create lasting memories. The event was filled with exciting activities, delicious snacks, and a relaxing day in nature.
Upon arrival at the park, the SA officers directed each class to compose teams who eagerly participated in a challenging relay competition which included a potato sack race, a three legged race, a baby bottle soda chug, cup stacking competition and more. Friendly rivalries ignited as students showcased their athleticism and team spirit.
Senior Carlos Lopez recalled, “The relay was quite exciting. It was so funny watching people struggle through the obstacles. The hardest part was chugging ginger ale out of a baby bottle but the seniors did a good job cheering. It was a really positive and uplifting atmosphere.”
Following the games, students spread out into little picnic areas where some lay in the shade and talked with friends while others played soccer or enjoyed a thrilling game of volleyball. Junior Shella commented, “ The picnic was so much fun. I really love volleyball which is why I was so glad to not only play with my friends but also with other people from school I wouldn’t normally interact with. It was refreshing to be in nature on a nice sunny day.”
SA provided some snacks and drinks which the students enjoyed before a refreshing water balloon fight. With some students already wet, they decided to take a splash in the nearby lake. Others dried off in the grass and took the time to sign each other’s yearbooks.
The day ended with a delicious supper served by the SA officers in the tower. Students enjoyed vegetarian burgers, hotdogs, watermelon, lemonade, and dessert on Center Campus.
Sophomore Toby Quillin reflected, “SA picnic was the perfect final celebration to wrap up the year. Spending time with friends outdoors and enjoying good food will always be a fond memory. I'm glad I got to be in SA this year and share this experience with the whole school.”
