On September 9 the Form VI boys, along with Head of Upper School James Reynolds and Director of College Guidance Sanford Pelz '71, escaped the sauna of the city for a one-day retreat to Camp Morty, a Fresh Air Fund site in North Salem, N.Y.
Mr. Reynolds offers the following report: "With the assistance of activities facilitators from the Mountain Workshop, the boys met high- and low-rope challenges designed to encourage teamwork and personal challenge. It was wonderful seeing the boys work together, encourage each other and, generally, enjoy the company of their classmates. Even the students were surprised by the value of the day, noting that the retreat allowed them to reconnect and grow as a group. With the challenge of the college admission process looming, Form VI boys started the year off understanding the value of fraternity and ready to support, celebrate and encourage each member of the class as the year moves forward."
