The Class of 2013 embarked on Senior Survival, September 12-16, 2012, for Camp Mohaven which is located near Mount Vernon in northeast Ohio. The purpose of Senior Survival is to set aside time at the beginning of the school year to focus on life's basic issues. No other environment allows for self-explorations and revelation of God quite like nature. Seniors are challenged in ways they have never been before. Upon arrival at the camping site, they are given basic materials (such as plastic, duct tape, etc.) to build their shelter for the next five days making sure it will withstand the wind and/or rain. This experience is part of their Senior Bible grade and includes journal writing, group activities, participation, attitude and attendance as measured through the evaluations of both staff and group members. The team-building activities are designed to challenge seniors individually and strengthen them as a class or as Sean McCartney put it, "The team building activities are like no other!" "Senior Survial was an amazing experience. I feel so much closer to my classmates and I know that I can trust all of them now!" said Cheyene Silvers. "My favorite experience was the time I had with my classmates around the campfire...I died laughing everytime I got to spend time with them! I also loved those crazy rap battles!" exclaimed Sophia Papaioannou. And Aliane Kubwimana summed it up well, "I went into Senior Survival thinking that I knew my classmates and friends but after this experience my class grew closer than I ever thought was possible. It was an overall lifechanging experience!"
