Trinity Lutheran School in Waconia’s sixth grade class enjoyed three days of outdoor learning while staying at Camp Omega in Waterville, Minnesota in mid-May. Students applied science skills as they built and launched rockets, had fire starting contests, and braved the windy waves while canoeing. This hands-on learning activity is experienced annually by Trinity sixth graders and is a highlight for the students.

Another highlight and off-site learning opportunity occurs every May for Trinity eighth graders. The class culminates a year and a half of studying U.S. American History into a week-long trip to the nation’s capital, Washington D.C.

Among other things, students visited the White House, Washington Monument, World War II Memorial, Holocaust Museum, Arlington National Cemetery, and participated in the laying of the wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. This was a life changing trip for many of the students and one that develops a love for American History and life-long relationships.
