Points of Pride for 2017-2018

Dear CSS Families, Alumni, Past Parents, Grandparents, and Friends, In the age of information, we often try to measure literally everything, from our steps to social media “likes.”  This is very natural and can be helpful. However, sometimes we can make the mistake of thinking that things that are not easily measured, do not exist. This is ironic because some of the most important elements of the human experience are invisible and cannot be measured in real time. At The...

Freedom on the River | River Madness

Over the period of our Experience Centered Seminars, there have been many experiential and educational steps taken to get to canoeing down the Mississippi River. On the river, we used the water as a highway to get from camp to camp along the sandy banks of the big muddy river. This wild body of water took its own path, swallowing up much of the dry ground and sandbars. This state of the river’s flooding pushed us to paddle hard and far to find dry land suitable for a camp each night. This wild...

One thing that fascinated me was the number of street vendors along the trail. I didn’t understand how they could make enough money to make a...
