Camp Tecumseh

This entry was posted in News on by .

A highlight of our sixth grade year is our two-day, overnight trip to Camp Tecumseh. This leadership program, “Foundations for Success,” is developed specifically for sixth graders and focuses on teamwork, trust, leadership, self-confidence, communication and problem solving. We feel that this is an important part of our curriculum, as it reinforces the life skills and lifelong guidelines that the students have been developing throughout their years at Frontier. The program offers each student challenges and opportunities to grow as individuals, while building a strong sense of community within our classrooms.
