Pali Camp trip dates are TBD for the 2020-2021 School Year.

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).

Why are the kids going to Pali?

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.)

Cost & Payment Options

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.

Dates & Packing Info?

TBD for the 2020-2021 School Year

 

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.)

Pali Presentation Night!

DATES ARE TBD for the 2020-2021 School Year. All 5th grade families are invited to join us to meet a representative of The Pali Institute. 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!
