The 6th Grade Camp experience takes students out of the classroom and into nature for a week-long field trip that will create lasting memories. While the San Diego Unified School District no longer funds 6th Grade Camp, we are fortunate at Pershing that our 6th Graders still have the privilege of going to Camp Cuyamaca. But in order to go, we must ensure every 6th Grader has the opportunity to attend.
The cost per student for the five-day camp is $350. This fee includes lodging, meals, insurance, and transportation. We recognize some families may not be able to afford the entire $350 for their student, so raising funds is critical. Please watch for information from the 6th Grade Camp Committee on fundraising opportunities.
Camp letters were sent out on September 26, 2022. Please watch for emails from our 6th Grade Camp Committee and help us ensure that all our 6th graders will have this opportunity. Attached to the camp letter that your 6th grader received is a registration form asking you simply to state whether you wish your child to attend camp or not.
Note: Even if you do not wish your student(s) to participate, it would be extremely helpful if you completed and returned this form.
Our 6th graders are scheduled to attend camp the week before Spring Break, March 20 - 24, 2023.
Payments of cash, check or credit card (via PayPal on the Foundation’s site) may be submitted now through January 17th, 2023. Payment plans are available and are outlined In the form for parents tab. Even if you are not sure how you intend to pay yet, please complete the registration form so the committee can get an accurate headcount of how many students we should expect for the trip. Please return this form to either your child’s 1st period teacher or the Main Office by October 14th, 2022.
