Fifth Grade Camp

Who: McGrath fifth graders that have less than four major office referrals. See the Camp Behavior Policy here for more details.

What: Fifth Grade Camp is a two-day, overnight camp trip filled with curriculum-related and team-building activities.

When: Thursday, May 23 to Friday, May 24, 2019. Drop off is around 8:35 am on Thursday. Pick up is around 12:20 pm Friday.

Where: Camp Copneconic. Students are dropped off at camp, not at school. Need directions? Or see the map below.

Why: This is the final big field trip of a student’s time at McGrath. It is also a time of fun and learning. Students will work on teamwork and challenge activities, giving students a chance to try something new and brave. There are also learning activities about food chains, webs, and reptiles.

Costs: The trip costs $100 and includes all activities, lodging, and meals (lunch and dinner on Thursday, and breakfast and lunch on Friday).

Behavior Policy: Multiple office referrals in the third and fourth marking periods may result in loss of some or all camp privileges. See details here.

Chaperones: Parent chaperones for camp are not needed. We interview and select many high school camp counselors to supervise activities and the cabins overnight. Parents, you get the night off!
