Hume Lake unwinds leadership

Patches of sleet dotted the mountainside as the leadership class hiked through the rain. With the stars covered by clouds, the class relied on a few people with flashlights to survive the trek. After they arrived back to the cabin, the night continued with fellowship and games.

The team stayed at Hume Lake in sophomore Kevin Damm?s cabin, the Davis Den, from Feb. 17-19. Following the events of Night of the Stars, student leadership advisers Josh Tosland and Ericlee Gilmore led the class for a time of fun and bonding.

?We decided to go to Kevin?s Cabin because we wanted a change of setting after going to Falk?s Cabin for three years,? Tosland said. ?Since the retreat was not during school hours and they weren?t paying for the activity, we gave the students more freedom on the retreat because we have already done a lot of stuff together.?

A lot of stuff included unconventional fun like applying make-up to those do not normally wear the flaw concealing agent. For a close-up look, go to the Fun ‘n Photos section of this newspaper and check out the Feb. 22 photo “Will-ma” by Brittany Stobbe.

Despite a lack of snow, the leadership played broom hockey, board games and hiked to build unity.

?I enjoyed playing night games like sardines, silent football and taking hikes,? Katie White, ?09, said. ?I like being close to Hume Lake and becoming closer friends with other people.?

Besides spending time together, the class had the opportunity to spend quiet time by themselves to reflect about the past year and upcoming events.

?The location of Hume Lake was great because it was nice, quiet and the temperature was perfect,? Ross Perry, ?10, said. ?Playing broom hockey on the ice against random people was fun and I became closer with everybody.?

Student leadership is now planning Sadie Hawkins scheduled on April 14.
