Tall Timbers trip set


Some 60 sixth-graders, 50 from Lake Roosevelt and 10 from Nespelem, will get the “Tall Timbers” experience May 17-19 when they head for the outdoor education location near Leavenworth.

Each year, for the past several, Lake Roosevelt and Nespelem sixth-graders have traveled to Tall Timbers, an outdoor recreation/education resort nestled in the mountains about 10 miles out of Leavenworth.

The program there is designed to provide an opportunity for personal growth and team building by participating in a number of outdoor activities.

The experience and outing will cost $62 per person for lodging and meals with additional costs for some of the activities, plus a T-shirt designed by one of the sixth graders, Lilly Button.

Activities include the famous, or infamous, zipline, junkyard climb, low ropes, archery, a language course and plenty of other outdoor adventures.

The sixth-grade trip for the two schools is made possible by funding projects undertaken by the sixth-graders, a donation from Grand Coulee Dam PTA, a donation from JOM, a Colville Tribes donation, a Rotary donation and the proceeds from a special dance held earlier this year.
