Survivor…Girl Style

On the first weekend in May, all of our Richfield Residential Hall girls enjoyed a beautiful weekend at Maple Grove. This is an activity that the students look forward to all year long, and they always return with smiles and great stories. This year was no exception. RRH Dorm Manager, Angie “Grandma” Herrera, wrote this about this year’s adventure.


“May 4, 2012, several staff came in at 8 am and we loaded girls’ belongings into the trailers. Of course it’s our bedroom, bathroom supplies, kitchen items and don’t forget living room set! We pack a lot of stuff for the girls camp out! The girls had a super time throughout the whole time that they were there at Maple Grove. They went hiking and some even tried to catch some fish by hand. The fishing was not too successful, but we had enough of food that the kitchen staff had packed with us. I had a lot of help with cooking from a lot girls. We made fry bread with mutton stew with steam corn, dry bread on the grill. The food was awesome! We ate until we couldn’t take another bite and hiked off some more afterwards. Then, it’s time to eat again. Roasting marshmallows on sticks around the fire while sipping some Navajo tea that I brought and telling stories was a highlight. Our girls look forward to this every year (Navajo Tea). We all had a great time and some are planning what they are going to bring for the campout next school year.”

RRH staff, Tina Bigman, took the following pictures to share the experience with our family, friends and followers.
