MTA Outdoors Club Goes Kayaking

On September 11, the MTA Outdoors Club went kayaking on the Pompton and Passaic Rivers. The trip was arranged by YUHSB faculty advisor Mr. Murray Sragow, who also serves as Director of College Guidance and an instructor of history. Eleven MTA students, Mr. Sragow and faculty member Mr. Chayim Goldberg attended the trip. The trip lasted about four hours and it also included playing frisbee, skipping rocks, bonding with friends and enjoying the great outdoors.

The MTA students set off on their kayaks in Lincoln Park, NJ. At the midpoint of the trip, the boys stopped off at a beautiful grassy area to eat lunch. After more kayaking, they ended at Little Falls, NJ. It was impressive that there were students representing every grade who were able to get along and enjoy the experience together.

The MTA Outdoors Club hopes to take many more trips this year, exploring different parts of nature and bonding with friends along the way. The were grateful to Mr. Sragow for setting up the trip and to all the parents who volunteered to help transfer the kayaks back and forth. This was an incredible trip and a fantastic way to start off the year for the MTA Outdoors Club.
