April 3rd to 5th, 2019
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 $390 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 $130.00. Initial deposit is due no later than 12/14/18.
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.
Dates & Packing Info?
April 3-5th, 2019
Students will need to arrive at school from 7:00 am on Wednesday, April 3rd to check in and board buses. They will return to school around 1:00 pm on Friday, April 5th.
We will be providing a list of what kids should bring (clothing and bedding) closer to the trip. 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.)
