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 30 - Oct 4
San Miguel Elementary Sept 9 - 13
Vista La Mesa Academy Sept 9 - 13
Monterey Heights Elementary Sept 30 - Oct 4

To learn more about Outdoor School, please join us on Tuesday, August 27th at 5:30 p.m. at the Lemon Grove Academy Middle School - Alvarez Auditorium.  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.
