6th Grade Camp » Overview


Attention 6th Grade Families:

Sixth grade students of the Lemon Grove School District will have the opportunity to attend Cuyamaca Outdoor School this fall. The Outdoor Education Program run by the San Diego County Office of Education has worked with the School District to provide a five day/four-night experience for our Lemon Grove students.  The following dates have been scheduled to help get this year's class off to a great start:

LGA Elementary  Sept 17-21
San Miguel Elementary  Sept 17-21
Vista La Mesa Academy  Sept 17-21
Monterey Heights Elementary  Sept 17-21
San Altos Elementary  Sept 24-28
Mount Vernon K-8  Sept 24-28

To learn more about Outdoor School, please join us on either Wednesday, August 29 @ 5pm  or Thursday August 30 @ 6pm at the Lemon Grove Library Community Room.  Dustin Burns, Lead Outdoor Education Specialist from the San Diego County Office of Education, will share a presentation as well as answer your questions about Outdoor School, a once in a lifetime experience for Lemon Grove 6th graders!
  • The memorable week includes a variety of hands-on science experiences in beautiful the Rancho Cuyamaca State Park.  Students gain an appreciation of nature, develop an understanding of how life functions on earth, learn the importance of reducing human impact on the environment, and practice how to think like a scientist.
  • Students participate in countless activities throughout the week, including nature studies, all-day adventure, geocaching, rock climbing, archery, crafts, team-building, night hike, campfire, astronomy, and talent show.
