Your 5th grader will enjoy an amazing 3-day outdoor education program at The Pali Institute, located in Running Springs, near Lake Arrowhead (90 minutes from Santa Monica).
Two important reasons – to have a valuable, hands-on learning experience; and to enjoy time with their Roosevelt classmates in a new and engaging setting.
Pali Institute is an accredited school, and they teach primarily science topics. Check out the Pali Institute Website for more specifics, but a few instructor-led activities they discussed at parent information night included: learning about aerodynamics through making paper airplanes; dissecting squid; examining nature; doing experiments with fire; making and setting off rockets from bottles; climbing a really cool ropes course; and many other athletic activities. (Kids are encouraged, but not required to participate in the activities.)
The cost of this trip is $411 per student. Any family that can pay for their child will be asked to do so, however, no child who wants to go will be left out because of finances. If you would like to request financial assistance, please contact our principal, Lynda Holeva. If you’d like to donate to the scholarship fund, an option will be present on the payment page. You may pay in full or choose to make three equal monthly payments of $137.00. If you choose the 3-payment option, the 1st payment is due no later than Oct 24, 2019, the 2nd no later than Nov 21, 2019, and the last is due on or before Jan 23, 2020.

We hope that every single Roosevelt 5th grader will participate in this adventure! If you have questions, please contact one of the 5th Grade parent representatives at PaliCampRoosevelt@gmail.com
Future communications regarding Pali Institute Camp will be via Email. Please confirm with your Room Rep that you’re on your class roster to receive all updates.
April 20th-22nd, 2020
Students will need to arrive at school from 7:00 am on Monday, April 20th to check in and board buses. They will return to school around 1:00 pm on Wednesday, April 22nd.
UPDATE: Here is the packing list for camp–plan that it may be cold weather! They will need a heavy winter jacket and snow boots. (Because it may snow, hoodies and sneakers are not appropriate for the mountain conditions and temperatures.) They will not be allowed to bring any technology, such as cell phones, iPhones, iPads, etc. (It’s recommended, however, to bring a disposable camera – non-disposables are okay, too, but they may get damaged by snow or rain.)
All 5th grade families are invited to join us to meet a representative of The Pali Institute on Wednesday October 2nd, 2019 at 6:30 PM in the Roosevelt Auditorium. Come learn about the Institute and the amazing science experience your child will have at Pali Camp. You will have an opportunity to ask all your questions. Your 5th grader is welcome to attend!
