The kids in Club Chivalry for Successful Students had a great time on their field trip to the ropes course at the Florida Elks Youth Camp which was sponsored by Tampa Elks Lodge #708. On Sept. 30 at 7:30 a.m., Kristina Chowning, Jeanne Reinhart, Tommy Moore, Rita Smith and two new administrative coaches from the school loaded up the charter bus with kids, snacks and drinks and headed north. They worked on some ground teambuilding skills until lunch. They then took a short tour of some of the facilities and returned to the ropes course. They spent some more time on the ground activities involving strategic planning and teambuilding. Though at first glance they seemed quite simple, the kids were challenged to their limits without leaving the ground. Finally, the helmets were on and the sky was literally the limit. They cheered on their teammates and overcame their fears as they went up. It was a fantastic start to the school year.
