We welcomed New Prague Middle Schools and the YES Program.
This week, New Prague Middle School visited Eagle Bluff in three different groups; Justice League and Red Bulls came for a Monday through Wednesday visit, and Navy Seals came for a Wednesday through Friday visit. While they were here, the 6th graders were able to experience Oneota, Pioneer Life, Winter Survival, Group Challenges, Animal Signs, Treetops, and GPS Pathfinders.
