Ninth Grade Departs for Annual Bivouac

Keeping an historic tradition alive, BB&N ninth graders boarded buses this morning for the school's 66th annual Bivouac. The 12-day wilderness immersion helps the freshmen to form bonds and glean lifelong lessons from "nature's classroom" in the New Hampshire woods.

In addition to ropes courses, latrine digging, orienteering, and shelter building, students learned about sustainable agriculture, how to cook over an open fire, and of course...how to brave the frigid early morning swims in Silver Lake.
