Tanner Kyllo flipped upside down as he flew through the air on Camp Fontanelle's zip line Friday morning.
Kyllo was one of 54 Arlington sixth-graders at the camp for outdoor education — a lesson organized by teachers Erin Reed and Jake Eckhardt.
This is the 11th year sixth-graders from Arlington have participated in outdoor education. The zip line was just one of several activities. Students also played laser tag, climbed a tree using ropes and pulleys and raced pedal cars on a track.

Students were challenged to find the oldest person buried in the cemetery and also made rubbings of the headstones.
