The Freshman had an interactive and fun day at Tom Sawyer Camp located at Hahamongna Watershed Park, La Canada, where they had an entire class team bonding day on October 16. They participated in many different types of team building activities, and learned the valuable role that communication plays in working towards a common goal together. Natalie Miera ‘23 reflected saying, “I liked how all the activities forced us to think outside the box. I also liked how the activities made us use each other’s ideas.” The day consisted of various challenges with each holding their own special value to help the students grow as noble Cubs. One activity consisted of balancing a group of nails on one head. It proved to be quite difficult for about 90% of the groups according to Eric Ikari who is the program director for Tom Sawyer. The entire day experience had a great impact on Mayfield’s girls who came out with new morals on their minds. Class of 2023, Chelsea Ng says, “I liked how everyone bonded, and worked together.” Connections were made and relationships came out stronger among our Cubs. Karina Norton ‘23 shared with us her concluding thoughts: “I got to know some of my classmates better, and it was really fun!” What a Great Day!
