More than 200 choir students attend annual weekend retreat

Every year, choir students pack into six buses to travel to Mo Ranch, an outdoor retreat in Hunt, Texas, for a weekend of bonding and making friendships and memories that will last a lifetime.

“I loved Mo Ranch,” freshman Lucy Colangelo said. “I was super excited going into it because I had heard such great things about it from the choir directors and other students. It totally lived up to the hype.”

Sophomore Julia Cavazos went back to Mo-Ranch for her second time this year.

“Mo Ranch is so much fun,” Julia said. “It’s a really good opportunity to bring the choir together as a family and allow us to grow closer with one another. It sets a good foundation for the rest of the year.”

Though Mo Ranch may be all about harmony and friendship, when it’s time for Molympics, students get crazy competitive. Molympics is squad survival of the fittest in a tournament of different events including nuke’m, orange-pass, tug-of-war and the mud pit.

“Molympics is definitely one of the best parts about Mo Ranch,” sophomore Adam Jasper said. “It’s always action-packed and the students who plan it always do great job. It’s mostly a good way to meet new people especially for some of the freshmen that don’t know anyone.”

After an action-packed day Saturday and a night of singing and dancing, it’s time to pack up and head back home.

“I can’t believe this was my last mo ranch,” senior Grace Patton said. “But I wouldn’t have it any other way. I couldn’t imagine a better last experience, or better people to spend it with.”
