Our 5th Graders Are…

…off to Camp Pinewood! It was a beautiful day to kick off 5th grade camp!  If you were near Georgetown between 9-9:30 am, you saw students checking in their bags and counting down the seconds to head north to camp.

The forecast is beautiful for the three days of activities and adventures.  The focus of the camp experience is on the core values of respect, responsibility, caring and honesty. Children discover new facts about the natural world around them, but more importantly, they learn about themselves, other students and adults.

Many thanks to everyone who supported this experience by purchasing items that helps to fund the camp fee for all our 5th grade students.

As you know, every spring we take our 5th graders to Camp Pinewood for a three day, 2 night camping trip.  Camp Pinewood is a YMCA camp located in Twin Lakes, Michigan (near Muskegon).  This camp has phenomenal staff.  They truly have made a difference in the lives of many of our students over the past several years.

Nearly 5,000 children each year come to experience new things and have fun at Camp Pinewood. They deserve to have a field that allows them to experience the power of sports and team play
This field is important to the community because:  Children of so many different socio-economic backgrounds come here to learn new things and to meet new people. It links many communities together.

This field is in poor condition because: The camp was forced to cut expenses this year and not complete a field renovation that began last year.

Every year the Kellogg company offers the opportunity to fix up athletic fields at 30 locations throughout the country.  Camp Pinewood is one out of thousands of applicants that have the opportunity to have their athletic fields redone–and they need our help to win.

Simply go to the Kellogg’s website and vote for the camp.  Search for the camp by typing in Camp Pinewood.  When it comes up, click on the camp photo and then VOTE!
