West Sound Academy in Poulsbo brought 86 students in grades six-12 to the Dungeness Recreation Area for its all-school fall camp out Sept. 15-17.


Staff said the trip was to promote unity and community service among the students.


On Sept. 16, middle-schoolers played icebreaker games while 55 high-schoolers hiked to the New Dungeness Lighthouse and picked up trash along the way.


Thirteen international students, from China, Egypt, Germany, India, the Philippines and Ukraine, attended. Some of them experienced a marine environment for the first time while on the trip.


This was the school’s first fall retreat in the Sequim area.
