During the seventh grade, students learn to lift their weight at Camp Glen Brook. The mechanics unit includes hoisting each other to the ceiling of the barn in a "bosun's chair," and raising heavy objects using levers, pulleys, and fulcrums. Students also experience the high ropes course for the first time, an exercise in both physics and teamwork.
Students of the seventh grade also embark on a Coming-of-Age Trip with members of the eighth grade class. A trip to Glen Brook specially designed to tackle important issues that arise during puberty, students will gain the confidence and the perspective they need to support them through this period of personal transitions.
