Students and faculty adventure at Becket!

On September 21st, we voyaged off on our annual student and faculty trip to Becket, Massachusetts for a few days of outdoor fun and adventure. Students scaled high ropes courses, sailed down zip lines, engaged in group problem-solving, canoed, hiked, learned about local ecology, and spent an evening around a campfire. (S’mores were on the docket as usual, along with fire-toasted Pop Tarts for the brave of heart and strong of stomach.)
Every fall, the trip gives Meridian a chance to re-unify after the summer, and new students have the opportunity to fully bond with their peers outside of the classroom. Whether it was the crisp fall foliage, the fun and supportive leaders, or the evening in the cabins playing cards and relaxing, many students reported that this was their favorite Becket trip yet.
