My Students

Our class runs on hard work and high fives. We celebrate our successes and help those who need a hand.

Some of my students have never received the opportunity to explore outside of their local area, let alone a camp that will provide them with a plethora of outdoor experiences in a different environment than they are accustomed.

Taking an overnight trip to a camp would be an experience that they will remember for quite some time. They're amazing kids who deserve an opportunity to experience new and exciting things.

My Project

This project will cover a portion of the cost to attend an overnight session at the Outdoor School. The Outdoor School offers our 5th-grade students a unique experience in natural surroundings. Students will spend two days attending classes that are grounded in natural science, conservation, and use Texas Essential Knowledge objectives as a guide to instruction.

Taking an overnight camping trip will give some students their first chance to encounter a camp of any kind.

Additional classes include personal growth opportunities through group team-building, a high ropes course, and an overnight camping event that will be a lifelong memory for these students.

The variety of outdoor educational experiences will give our students the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors with a focus on environmental stewardship and experiential learning. Students who have attended the camp in the past have returned to school with an universal respect for all living things, a leap in self-confidence, experiential knowledge of science concepts, and better interpersonal skills used during group work.

The students are excited about the opportunity to go on a trip that will allow them to explore their curiosity and experience brand new things. This type of opportunity cannot be replicated in the classroom.

Your donation to this project will help make this trip a reality and provide lifelong memories for some truly amazing kids.
