BROOKLYN - Brooklyn middle school students spent some of their spring break outdoors today at Gateway National Recreation Area.

Students biked, practiced archery and received canoe and kayak training on land. The park is back in full swing after partially closing to become a major Superstorm Sandy relief area.

The free event was hosted by the Park and Millenium Development, a local nonprofit organization. The program, called Out of School Time (OST), is a way to promote the outdoors while keeping students busy during school break.

The park is now open seven days a week.
