Clowning Around In Newark

They Did It Again…

For the 42nd consecutive year, the freshman class of 2018, along with transfer students, completed the 55 mile section of the Appalachian Trail that runs through New Jersey.  In total, more than 15o St. Benedict’s students participated in this annual ritual.  This year’s hike was drier than most, but also one of the hottest on record.  Daily temperatures reached the high 80’s on most days, teaching the young hikers the importance of hydration and the need to drink 6-8 quarts of water per day to stay healthy.  The young men were in the woods from May 24-29.  Join the students on their hike by clicking HERE to see photos at scanmanphotos.com....
