Prairie Woods is a place for exclamation points!

A fourth grade boy with rosy cheeks lays in the snow making a snow angel while waiting for the bus at the end of a full day of cross country skiing, snowshoeing, animal tracking.   He looks up with a smile and joyfully proclaims-  "I've never spent a whole day outside before!"

A sixth grade girl volunteered that "this was the best day of my life! " as she boarded the school bus to return home.

A special ed. teacher pulls staff aside and exclaims at how well a young student worked with his group and provided leadership during a team building challenge.  "That kid hasn't said a word all year in my classroom-  I am amazed that he not only participated but took a leadership role!"

A parent reports:  "My kid didn't stop talking during the two hour drive home from Forkhorn Camp!   This is a kid who typically won't say more than a couple of words in response to a question.  He had a great time learning about the outdoors and meeting new friends!"
