8th Grade Overnight 2022
The end-of-year traditions that conclude 8th Graders' VCS experience are underway, including the first in-person 8th Grade Overnight since 2019!
Last week, our soon-to-be graduates traveled to Philadelphia, PA, where they enriched their Social Studies, Science, and Art learning with visits to the National Constitution Center and Liberty Bell, the Franklin Institute, and Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens. After a day of fun and exploration (and cheesesteaks!) in Philly, they headed to Bryn Mawr Mountain Retreat – the traditional site of the Upper School Overnight – where the focus shifted from educational activities to social-emotional learning as students engaged in team-building challenges, participated in games and shares, and reflected on their VCS experience together.
