Coastal Students Head Inland for Snow Camp

April 07, 2016 | Ruthie Gage

In January, Lincoln City Adventist School students in grades seven through 12 enjoyed two days of fun in the snow while studying high-mountain science topics ranging from glaciers to varying precipitation amounts within a given snowpack. Snow Camp took place at Big Lake Youth Camp in central Oregon, under the direction of Arthur Ordelheide, who specializes in outdoor education. The students enjoyed themselves immensely, and all felt like they came away with increased awareness of practical science principles.
