High School Service Learning Trips- 5/28 through 6/8
Various destinations by grade

The High School students embark on two weeks of service learning trips that involve working with social service institutions. The 9th grade will work on a Community Homestead Farm in upstate New York. The 10th grade will build homes in the parishes of New Orleans. The 11th grade will work with differently abled residents in a Camphill Village intentional community in New York State. The 12th grade will travel abroad this year to the Dominican Republic—where the students will work in a collaborative work program, while exploring themes of immigration, poverty, human rights, and socioeconomic disparity within the country. The students will work with local community leaders and organizations on a batey (pronounced buh-tay) which are located in the sugar cane fields where workers live. Traditionally these migrant workers are Haitians, and many bateyes have become permanent residences. The seniors are partnering with batey leaders on building projects for the improvement of homes, construction of latrines, maintenance of community gardens/facilities, and on education projects.

8th grade Whitewater Rafting Expedition
Mancos, Colorado & Bluff, Utah

The 8th grade travels to the Colorado plateau to explore the ancestral puebeloan archaeological site at Ute Tribal Park. They then embark on a white-water rafting trip along the Lower San Juan River for 4-5 days traveling many river miles in the canyons from Bluff, Utah to the town of “Mexican Hat.” Led by a team of Deer Hill expedition guides, the students learn the lore of the river as they paddle rafts and individual “duck boats” navigating the forceful rapids and calm bends of the river. They learn campcraft skills, assist cooking meals and make and strike camps along the shoreline every day while experiencing the adventure of river travel, geological exploration and night campfires while sleeping under the desert stars. This trip is intentionally structured as an independent expedition where the students support and depend on each other; it is a culminating capstone experience for the Middle School students’ education (as they are soon to embark on the transition to High School and beyond).
