We welcome you to the beginning of your child’s Science Camp journey! Science Camp has been a long standing tradition with our 6th grade students and families for over 10 years. It is one of those memories that are long standing with our Pirate community. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have missed out on a few of those years and we’re hoping things will shift next school year to offer this opportunity once again. Not only are we looking to offer this opportunity once again, but we’re extending it to students of all grade levels to ensure everyone gets an opportunity to join. Please note that due to capacity limit: 6th graders will be attending at a date that is different from that of 7th and 8th grades. Please view the details listed below and attached packet information.
Fall 2022 marks the beginning of the Science Camp process. Additional information regarding travel, packing list, and more will be shared with you as we approach the departure date spring 2023. For more information see the Alliance Redwoods website: www.allianceredwoods.com.
Our annual Science Outdoor Education Camp takes place at Alliance Redwoods in Occidental, CA near Santa Rosa. This camp is an incredible opportunity to experience science and adventure education in the outdoors! Camp provides initiative and team building activities, challenge courses and other day and night activities for learning. The content students engage with is based on some of our English Language Arts and Science State Standards. Some of the activities include rock-wall climbing, zip-lining, and nature and environmental classes. While we hope all students will be part of this fantastic experience, attendance is not mandatory. Students choosing not to attend camp are required to attend school as normal.
