American Academy - 8th Grade Retreat

We are looking forward to spending some cherished time with a last hurrah for our 8th grade students! Along with a handful of staff members, the 8th graders will be heading to the great outdoors to have some fun with just their AA classmates. Learning new problem solving, leadership and teamwork skills, your students will be exploring the outdoors while navigating high ropes, successfully conquering the escape room, flying through the air on a zip line and much more! This experience is built to take a break from learning and enjoy their time with friends.

Green U - DCSD Sustainability Retreat

Stone Canyon is proud to present the first annual Green U Retreat.  In partnership with Douglas County School District's Sustainability Department and Waste Management, we want to teach educators how to address the 21st Century Skills and empower their students to put them into action.

Green U is a one-day event at Stone Canyon full of activities, workshops, networking, and new knowledge.

This year's retreat is for DCSD employees only, but we hope that the event can grow to include educators from around Colorado in the future.
