Mount Logan Middle School, supported in part by YDI, has sponsored two different Summer Discovery programs.
1) River Rats is for the 5th grade students going into the Discovery program in 6th grade. It gets them started on literacy, enhances their self esteem, and develops a relationship with the Discovery teachers.
2) ESL Discovery is a similar program for ESL students at Mount Logan Middle School. The students are taken daily into the outdoors where they apply literacy principles to what they are seeing in their environment.
“Spend a couple weeks with us and you’ll never look at moving water in the same way again—just don’t expect to sit around like a delinquent Huck Finn. We’ll listen to various excerpts from the best literature about rivers and read about Shy Fox’s journeys to the same places we visit. We’ll write and sketch in field journals, learn how to paddle a canoe, row a boat, and make first-hand observations of the way rivers sort rocks, pebbles, and sand meticulously by size. Understand the math behind figuring the volume and velocity of rivers. Come prepared to hike and camp and work hard and be ready to hang onto your hat!”
