CELC Middle School in Vermont – Day Two!

Ah, CELC in Vermont!

We travel with students and the magic happens – especially in our River House. Throughout the year, the CELC group works together, plays together, builds trust and respect for one another. Here, for a week in Vermont, we live together and share space 24/7.   Challenging, yes, however, room for so much growth. Students share in the cooking, such great meals. We take care of our living space and for each other – we are strong and get to learn, stretch, and be!
