Named for the address of our school, Camp 3790 brings the ninth grade class together before they embark on their high school journey.

Earlier this term, ninth graders made their way to Sojourn Adventures, where they rock climbed, played games, and participated in team bonding exercises. Facilitated by members of the senior class, groups engaged in discussions aimed at bringing these students closer together.

They built friendship bracelets, made sandwiches for The Sandwich Project Atlanta, and wrote letters for the elderly through Christ the King Church.

Apart from gradewide bonding, camp 3790 also provided opportunities for older students to connect with younger ones. Leader Lyric Hoff had nothing but good things to say. “Camp 3790 was a great experience for me as a senior getting to know the freshmen,” she said. She loved “being able to take part in their welcoming process to Marist.”

The ultimate goal of the camp is to welcome new students while strengthening old bonds from middle school.

Engaging in service together in gave the ninth graders a chance to work towards a common goal. Service is a core value of our school, and these projects made the day about more than the Marist community.

It introduced the ninth grade class to our values at Marist, and likely to one another as well.
