Dear 5th Grade Calvert Families,
Calvert Charter for Enriched Studies would like to present a wonderful opportunity to your 5th grade child, a 3 day, 2 night camping experience at Pali Institute October. This will be our 3rd year attending Pali Institute which is located in Running Springs, California, on 72 acres in the San Bernardino Mountains, surrounded by 2000 acres of scenic beauty.
The purpose of the field trip is for our students to learn independence, strengthen leadership skills, participate in team building activities and explore the wonders of nature through outdoor education. In groups of 15 students to 1 Pali Instructor the students will engage in activities including: orienteering (use of compass, topographical maps, GPS etc.), freshwater biology (ecology), archery, campfire, a night hike and stargazing. (Students are within instructor’s view at all times.)
Pali Institute is an approved LAUSD field trip destination. It is a gated facility with 24-hour surveillance, a full-time registered nurse, full-time staff coverage / supervision by qualified instructors holding Bachelor’s degrees or higher. The instructors undergo a Federal background check and are CPR trained and certified.
The students will stay in cabins – with 11 students and 1 Pali instructor. Each cabin has at least 1 indoor bathroom, radiant floor heating, and comfortable bunk beds.
