A once in a lifetime experience for Lemon Grove 6th graders!

  • The memorable week includes a variety of hands-on science experiences in beautiful the Rancho Cuyamaca State Park.  Students gain an appreciation of nature, develop an understanding of how life functions on earth, learn the importance of reducing human impact on the environment, and practice how to think like a scientist.

  • Students participate in countless activities throughout the week, including nature studies, all-day adventure, geocaching, rock climbing, archery, crafts, team-building, night hike, campfire, astronomy, and talent show.
