Sixth Grade Camp Information - Please Read Carefully

Dear Parents,

As many of you know, our sixth graders go to camp at Howell Nature Center. We are very excited about this wonderful tradition and it is our goal to have as many students participate as possible.  Camp is a very positive experience for your child and the focus is on teamwork, appreciation of the world around us, activities related to 6th grade curriculum, and of course, to have a lot of fun and a new experience.  Below is some general information about camp. Much more information will be provided throughout the coming months.

Place and Dates

Howell Nature Center, 1005 Triangle Lake Rd., Howell, MI, 48843 (517) 546-0249

Feb – 6 – 8 – Pinta, Smith, Cervantes

February 13 - 15 – Herriff, Piper, Wright

February 20 - 22– Bennett, Rebbe, McDaniel (Thorne), Center


The cost of camp is $170.00 per student which covers the following:  Meals, nightly snacks, all activities, lodging, a full-time health officer, purified water, buses and luggage transport.  There will be a Little Caesar’s Pizza Kit fundraiser in late October where each child can earn money toward their own individual cost. Payment for camp and all forms will be due no later than Monday, December 10, 2018.  


Our goal is to have at least 4 full time parent chaperons, 2 males and 2 females, per classroom.  The chaperons are expected to sleep in the student cabins and assist in all activities.  The cost for each chaperone is $85.00.  We are not able to go to camp if we do not have enough chaperons.  If you are able to be a chaperon for camp, please fill out the bottom portion and send it back a.s.a.p.  We truly appreciate your help with this and you will also have a lot of fun!

Thank you,

Sixth Grade Teachers
