Events and Activities 2012

 

Evening Clubs

In addition to workshops, we also had evening clubs - art, poetry reading, music. So many things to choose from... and so little time!

Sigma Tournament

Every day the students of the four teams (Alpha, Gamma, Epsilon, and Tau) would compete by solving problems in Math, Physics, Biology, Chemistry. At the end of the week the total score for each team was computed and the winner determined. This year it was Team Epsilon!

Chess club

Rope Course

This was a team-building exercise, organized by Quinipet retreat owners.

Chessball

Last day sport event, competition between campers and staff  - combining soccer and chess. We won't tell you who won it.
