Pinecrest's annual class trip was held this year from April 23-24. The class trip is a special time for fun and fellowship among the Second and Third Year students, as many of them will be graduating and moving on from Pinecrest in May.
Friday, the group visited the beach at Long Island Sound and had a barbeque at student Evan Bolton's house. The night ended with worship around a bonfire.
"It was nice to have some time away from the campus, but to still meet God in the same way," said Third Year student Ashley Dedee, who was also excited about tasting salt water for the first time at the beach.
The group then headed out bright and early Saturday morning for a day in Boston. The bulk of their time was spent doing a photo scavenger hunt throughout the city. The students broke into three groups and were sent off to get pictures of the teams performing tasks such as "sitting on a fire truck," "getting handcuffed by the police" and "fitting everyone into a phone booth." The scavenger hunt proved a great way to see the city and mingle with the locals.
"Boston is easily one of the friendliest cities in America," stated Third Year student Chris Hannan. "I'm glad I got to visit it with this group; they really made the trip worthwhile."
Second Year student Stephanie Polivka said it was the most fun she has had in the last two years: "We got to meet so many people and pour out what God has poured into us."
