We finally have our confirmed dates for Outdoor School at Camp Loma Mar for next year's 5th grade class. We are scheduled to leave for camp on Monday, April 22nd and will return Friday, April 26th. Camp Loma Mar
is an outdoor school located in the hills of Pescadero, CA. Check out the link to explore the camp's website. At Camp Loma Mar, our children will get to hike in the redwoods, kiss banana slugs, explore the marsh lands and learn about native and invasive species. They will go tidepooling and sing campfire songs. They will visit an organic garden and taste the produce while feeding the chickens. They will work with their cabinmates to create a skit for the last night's campfire and they will dance at the barnyard boogie. This camp is a wonderful experience that we would like to continue to offer to our 5th graders at Montair. Unfortunately, we have been very short on our donations the past few years. Last year, we were short almost $7,000 and the prior year, we were short more than $8,000. We have had to pull money from other programs to pay for this shortfall. We are hoping that by opening up the window to make donations now and throughout the summer, we will avoid this shortfall.
We will have an information night early in the new year with a representative from the camp there to answer your questions.
