In Yavneh News

Last week, Yavneh’s 5th, 6th, and 7th graders journeyed to Yosemite National Park. Our young explorers hiked for miles, crawled through bear caves, scrambled up rocks, and gazed at waterfalls. On Thursday, the majestic landscape transformed into a winter wonderland right before their eyes: It snowed, and snowed… and snowed! Snowmen, snow angels, and snowball fights popped up all over the campsite as the adventurers took full advantage of the magical change in weather. Throughout the journey, students deepened their friendships and their trust in one another, and discovered the power of perseverance. It was a journey that they will cherish for years to come. 

Student Testimonials 

Have you ever rock scrambled? While in Yosemite, we “rocked” it! We conquered our fear of heights, worked as a team, and relied on each other. Rock scrambling and playing in the Merced River were the fifth graders’ two most-loved activities. – Riley (5th)

We explored El Capitan West! It was steep and the path was covered with fallen trees. It was tough. But as we got to the end, it was all worth it. There was a mind-boggling view. We were surrounded by beautiful mountains and waterfalls! All of the classes had a wonderful experience in Yosemite. – Lea (6th)

We saw the tallest waterfall in North America. It was a beautiful sight to see because there were multiple waterfalls in one! After, we ate lunch right next to the waterfall. The hike was very hard, and I almost fell, but the guide caught me. Overall, the tough hikes taught me how to be more independent and brave. – Aviv (5th)

Last week in Yosemite it snowed a lot… It was all over the campsite and up to our ankles! We had an awesome snowfall fight, and the teachers joined in! The snow was such a beautiful sight to see. We also hiked in the snow as it was falling down on us. Even though it was freezing cold, it really brought us together and showed us how capable we are. – Lilah (6th)
