Eagles worked hard this year, so it was important to close Session Six with a celebratory Spring Ranch Trip, including team challenges, meaningful reflections and commitments for next year and beyond.

We started with spirited contests, including an obstacle courseĀ  a shooting competition and a kayak race, with a closely fought team battle until the very end.

Next it was time for swimming and a nature tour of the ranch.

As we prepared to settle in our Hill Country bunk beds beneath 100 year old oaks, it was time for s’more’sĀ  and a fireside ceremony, where each Eagle chose which roles in life to discard, embrace and hold as priceless.

The next morning we assembled high on a hilltop to welcome the sunrise, celebrating how far we had come together; bidding”goodbye” to a few Eagles who were heading to Launchpad or beyond, and already anticipating the upcoming year.
