Students on Acadia Team 6-2 visited Becket-Chimney Corners YMCA – Berkshire Outdoor Center in Becket, MA for a day of team-building and core curriculum based activities in order to  build a strong, healthy, and caring unified team.

The Berkshire Outdoor Center offers a wide variety of activities that “help build respect, responsibility, and caring within the individual, between individuals within the group, between the groups, and between humans and the environment.”  These are important, essential life skills that our team students will benefit from and incorporate throughout their educational experiences.  As well, the activities offered involve “observation, interaction, and reflection which are all essential to help learners construct knowledge, skill, and value from their experiences.” While at Berkshire Outdoor Center, our students had an opportunity to participate in low ropes challenges, a cultural awareness activity,  and work cooperatively in team building activities.
