The seniors will be having the River Trip on May 16th and 17th. It will be located at Sparrow Hawk Camp in Tahlequah, OK, and it will be an overnight trip. They will leave Wednesday morning around 8 a.m. and come back Thursday afternoon around 5 to 6 p.m. Students will either need to bring a tent themselves or buddy up with a friend who is.

Although breakfast and dinner will be provided, you will still need to bring money for two meals. They will be stopping to get food on the way down there and then again on their way back to school.

On Thursday there will be a 6-mile float down the Illinois River, which the school will be paying for. There are four different types of flotation devices: canoes, rafts, kayaks and inner tubes. They will have rafts provided. If you are wanting to go twice or use any floating device other than the raft, it will not be paid by the school!

Other than the float trip, the camp is equipped with a playground that includes slides, swings and trampolines. There is also a volleyball court, so make sure to bring your volleyballs and soccer balls.

Seniors, this will be an unforgettable trip, so you won’t want to miss out!

Students will be given a list of items beforehand, but below is a lit of things you should bring.

  • Tent
  • Money
  • Snacks
  • Change of clothes
  • Light jacket
  • Swim suit
  • Sunscreen
  • Sunglasses
  • Shoes that can be worn in the river
  • Shower essentials (Towels, Shampoo, Soap)
  • Soccer ball and volleyball

Any additional information will be given in advanced.
