A group of 29 Campion Academy students spent four days immersed in the joy of winter: sledding, skiing, snowboarding and playing in the snow for the annual ski trip at Copper Mountain.
On Saturday morning, the trip started off with students leading the worship service at the Leadville Seventh-day Adventist church. The local members were able to experience the student praise team as well as personal testimonies from Love Pickle and Angel Villalobos. Later in the day students changed into their snow gear and headed to the town hill for sledding.
During the next three days Campion students were able to enjoy the slopes on skis and snowboards under sunny skies. Chase Bright, senior, states, “I had a great time with my friends. I had a lot of fun switching my skis for Owen’s snowboard and absolutely shredding the gnar.”
Besides the wonderful weather, Campion students really enjoyed the meals that were prepared for them at the condos. “My favorite part of the ski trip was bonding with people I wouldn't hang out with on a daily basis and the food was amazing too.” says Lizzie Pearson. Students would meet together everyday for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
During this trip, Campion students grew closer together as they got to know each other better. Brisa Maldonado says, “It was great learning something new with people who are willing to teach while having fun, and making new friends.”
Students returned back to school campus tired, but with great experience and countless memories.
