On the 13th through the 14th of October the seniors of the Woods Charter high school attended Camp Chestnut Ridge for their senior retreat. At the Retreat seniors were able to bond with each other over fun activities and gatherings to talk about the high school. The Seniors were able to establish goals that they plan to accomplish as a senior class for the 2016-2017 school year. The retreat provided a lot of time for students to reflect on their high school careers and to look at what the future held for them. Overall it was a great time for the seniors and teachers to get to know everyone a little better, to have fun, and to provide seniors with a short getaway from school to reflect on their lives.
