6th Grade - Cuyamaca

6th Grade Cuyamaca Outdoor Education Camp

6th Grade: Sep 11 - Sep 15   (5 days Mon. - Fri.)


Dear 6th-grade families,
This year, HMS sixth graders have the opportunity to enroll in a week-long outdoor educational experience at Cuyamaca Outdoor School, located in Descanso, CA [email protected] or 760-765-3000 that cannot be replicated in the classroom setting. While at the camp, students will participate in a wide variety of educational activities designed to increase their awareness of the natural environment and ecology, as well as develop friendships and bonds among classmates. Some of the activities and classes planned for this year’s trip include citizen science projects, nature hikes, crafts, and team building.
Departure time and date: Departing Monday, September 11th at 7:00 am from the HMS parking lot
Our goal is to have 100% of students in grade six attend this valuable program. Your student will need to bring a snack for the drive to Cuyamaca.
The fee to participate is $700.00. You may pay by credit card on the HMS Web Store on the HMS website https://HMSStore.myschoolcentral.com (with your student's ID number). Register for an account or log in and when asked if you are a student, click "yes," do not click "no." If you pay by check, make it payable to Huntington Middle School. If you have a financial hardship, please contact the HMS Front Office immediately at (626) 299-7000, and speak with Michelle Boecking, our Accounting Technician at extension 1328. You may also email her at [email protected]
