Middle and Upper School Fall Trips:
Every September, the Upper School and Middle School take two much-needed days to bond with each other and the faculty. The strength of our community is a vital part of the LTS experience, and the Fall Trips help bring new students into the fold while reaffirming our values after a long summer away.
The Middle School trip is full of focused team-building activities that lay the groundwork for the rest of the year. Camp Chingachgook on Lake George is a frequent location for the Middle School trip, equipped with a full ropes course and climbing wall.
The Upper School itinerary is jam packed with activities, from hiking to rafting, visiting historic sites, and gathering as a community for Spirit Team challenges and shared time around the campfire. In recent years the Upper School has stayed at the Round Hearth in Stowe, and the Silver Bay YMCA on Lake George.
8th Grade Trip to Washington, D.C.:
The 8th grade class spends all year preparing for their one-week trip to our nation’s capitol in March. The eighth graders take ownership of the trip and are expected to fundraise throughout the year to reduce the overall cost. Once in D.C., the students visit a variety of national landmarks, from Arlington Cemetery to the White House. The trip is a capstone to the Middle School experience, and students look forward to this exciting educational event.
Language, Service, or Recreational Trips:
Each year, a variety of optional trips are offered during school holidays. In the past, LTS students have traveled abroad to England, France, Spain, Ecuador, Germany and Quebec on language focused trips. Service Learning trips to Guatemala and South Dakota taught participants about giving back and understanding people from different lifestyles. Some trips are just for fun: skiing in Montana or sightseeing in Boston have made memories our students hold dear. All trips vary in cost and some are limited to Upper School students.
