CAMP 2019 INFORMATION
This year we will be camping at Plumas-Eureka State Park. Our camp trip will
be held Monday-Wednesday, June 3-5. (The last week of school.)
Help!!!! We need 20 parents to volunteer to be a chaperone for our camp trip
to work. You will be placed with another adult, and 6-8 students. You will have a wonderful time with your child and their friends as we celebrate the end of our school year. For camp, we need a donation that works out to
about $45 per student - less after we see what is made at the rummage sale.
In the weeks prior to camp, students will be learning about nutrition and a
balanced diet. They will work in their camp groups to create 5 balanced meals with a budget of $13 per student. (If a camp group has 7 students and 3 chaperones, they will get $130 to spend). Next we will visit a local grocery store and price our meals. The morning we leave for camp, we will purchase our food and put it in ice chests. We will be able to use parent help during our camp planning times. Planning session times will be announced at the beginning of next week. Even if you are not going to camp to chaperone, we could use some adult helpers during planning sessions.
