CLYMER — Last Friday, two of Calvary Baptist Academy’s piano students — Lucy Shao, a ninth-grader, and Andy Chen, an eighth-grader — traveled to Mechanicsburg to participate in the KCEA Junior High Fine Arts Competition.

Both students received an excellent rating in their performances of classical piano pieces. Students from all across Pennsylvania participated in this competition.

Also, this week the senior class is on the senior trip to the Wilds Christian Camp, in Brevard, N.C., a large Bible camp designed to help teens in their spiritual life and growth.

The students were able to participate in many enjoyable activities, especially whitewater rafting. This morning they left the Wilds Camp to go to Pigeon Forge, Tenn., where they will take part in many different activities. They will be traveling home Monday morning. This time spent together has definitely been enjoyable for these seniors.

The freshmen, sophomores and juniors left Thursday on their two-day trip to the Creation Museum in Kentucky. They will be touring the museum and learning more about the Creator and how He marvelously created each and every object, living and nonliving.

The seventh- and eighth-graders traveled to Gettysburg today for their field trip as well, to learn about one of the most influential battles in the Civil War. This will definitely be a learning experience for them.

The academy provides these field trips with the hope that the junior high and senior high students will learn many important lessons, but also that they will enjoy the fun opportunities that the field trips present.

Many memories will be made throughout the trips and throughout the rest of the school year.
