Gatewood Elementary principal Rhonda Claytor shared the photo, explaining:

This is a picture of Gatewood Elementary teacher Dana Bogel and fifth-grade student Claire Palmer-Paige, at Camp Warm Beach in Stanwood, conquering the wall challenge. Our 4th and 5th grade students have been at camp since Wednesday and many have challenged themselves to climb the wall, ride horses and row canoes for the first time in their lives. Additionally, they do many cooperative challenges and work together in groups. They also seem to enjoy the food and swimming pool!

Checking out the Gatewood website, we noted other special offerings – including four days this summer that the school library will be open for summer-reading checkout.

  1. They had a magnificent time! What wonderful children, volunteers and staff, who all worked together to make this a very special overnight camp. I feel so blessed to have gotten to be a part of this community for the time that my child has been there.

  2. I am grateful for the Gatewood teachers, staff and families that make this camp a lifetime memory for our kids. Fabulous quote from a teacher in response to the rainy forecast, “there’s no such thing as bad weather; just bad clothes.”
