Key Details

Teaching staff Steve Moe, Marshall Anderson and Julia Gesensway (alumna from 2008) will accompany the campers. 

They will leave FSMN at 7am on Monday, July 23. Make sure campers eat breakfast beforehand.

They will return to FSMN by 4:30pm on Friday, July 27th. We are not serving students dinner. If the bus will arrive more than 15 minutes late, your child will call you from the bus using a teacher’s phone.

Rock Climbing

One of the activities during the week is rock climbing with Outward Bound at Shovel Point. We have climbed with staff from Voyageur’s Outward Bound (VOB) at Shovel Point in Tettegouche State Park on several occasions now.  Their staff is excellent and very professional.

They take safety very seriously.

They will lead our group in a “Challenge-by-choice” day of rock-climbing - meaning your children will be supported and encouraged but not pushed into anything they don’t feel ready to do.

VOB staff will provide helmets, harnesses and all necessary safety equipment and teach your children about the techniques and ethics of climbing in wild spaces.

Forms and Copy of Insurance Card 

In order to participate in rock climbing, each child must have the two forms listed below completed and turned in. The forms need to be completed by a parent or gaurdian and sent to the front office by Thursday, July 19. You can email the forms to the front office at frontoffice@fsmn.org (scan the documents) or drop them off or mail them.

The below forms are the correct forms. The correct forms were also emailed out to participating families on Friday, July 13. 

Please make sure to include a photo copy of your child's medical insurance card. Please copy both the front and back of the card.
