Between every two pines is a doorway to a new world." - John Muir COCSD and Mingus Mountain Camp and Retreat Center joined forces to facilitate an enriching experience for our 7th/8th grade and 5th/6th grade students from four schools, guiding them towards "Finding the YETI" (You Belong, Everyone Matters, Tenacious Courage, Inclusion for All). This invaluable opportunity, provided at no cost, left an indelible mark on our students, creating memories that will last a lifetime. Over two nights at Mingus Mountain, our students forged connections with peers from across the district, embarked on thrilling mountain adventures, and discovered the incredible qualities within themselves. A heartfelt thank you goes out to Mingus Mountain and Mr. King, whose visionary dream brought children into the embrace of nature. We are also deeply grateful to the families who entrusted their children to support our inaugural Winter Camp at Mingus Mountain! #cocsd #cottonwoodoakcreekschools #lifechangingeducation #mingusmountaincamp #wintercamp #leadershipcamp
