Weekend Trips & Events

On Sunday, the entire Summer Session community traveled to nearby Dunn State Park for an afternoon of outdoor fun. The 132-acre park features a 20-acre pond with a beach and swimming area, hiking and walking trails, and great spots for lakeside picnicking and games, such as volleyball and corn-hole. Cushing brought along a hot dog truck for the students as well, which offered our crew hot dog subs, fries, and Italian ices. The day proved to be a fun and invigorating way to unwind after two busy weeks and to recharge for week three! Other weekend highlights included a whale watch (with whale sightings!), and a day-long adventure in Boston, complete with a Boston Duck Tours voyage, sightseeing, dinner, and tickets to see Blue Man Group.
