Rock On

The first weekend in November, OASIS held its 3rd retreat, Rock On. But this time, there were double the amount of students, as DNS has almost doubled in size this year! We welcomed new DNS students as well as many new OASIS team members from Duke, Elon, and UNC.

On Friday, November 6, the boys participated in pre-retreat activities at DNS. These activities included a pep talk by a UNC track star,  creating team banners, and several team games and competitions.

On Saturday, November 7, we went to Pilot Mountain, about 30 minutes from Winston-Salem, NC.  Led by Fox Mountain Guides, the boys participated in intense rock climbing and repelling challenges. Many were able to learn to belay by themselves. The retreat activities also included mind games and challenges such as the “Egg Drop,” and “Marshmallow Tower” competitions.
