They had the chance to wall climb, boat in the lake, learn about archery and air rifles, play a variety of games and eat pizza.

Organized by the Bellefontaine Police Department, the Guide Program provided five distinct units of instruction to the eighth-graders throughout the year.

At Bellefontaine, it was part of the social studies curriculum, said Guidance Counselor Rebecca O’Rielley.

“I’ve had very positive feedback from all the students today,” she said. “I was glad the students were able to do something fun to wrap up Guide for the year.”
