Seniors+Remember+OPI

The seniors and staff who attended the Olympic Park Institute Trip this year gather outside the Rosemary Arch on the last day of the trip.

Every February, 50 Miramonte seniors and a select group of staff are invited to explore Washington State’s Olympic Peninsula for a week of exploration, conservation, and class bonding. Without cell phones or laptops to communicate through, students learn to pass the time actually conversing with one another, leading to a plethora of unforgettable quotes and memories, recounted below.
