Arbor Heights - Fifth Grade Camp 2011

Warm Beach Camp Outdoor Education

Conveniently located only one hour north from Seattle, Warm Beach Camp is the Northwest's premier camp, conference, and retreat facility. Unmatched natural beauty, friendly personal service, great home-style meals, exciting recreation, and a variety of comfortable lodging and meeting facilities, combine to make Warm Beach the most complete facility of its kind in the Northwest. The W-Bar-B Housing is the housing that will be used by Arbor Heights.

Warm Beach Camp is located on Port Susan Bay, which is a relatively shallow estuary. The Stillaguamish River empties in the bay about a mile north of the camp. The students will accumulate information about the estuary by studying the water temperature, salinity, depth of the water and types of soils. With that information we look at the habitat and organism that flourish in the unique area. This class can be taught using canoes or walking out to the tidelands. If you prefer to walk out we encourage you to wear boots or disposable shoes.

Camp Fundraising:


READ-A-THON - Wednesday, October 27th 2010 (9:30 am - 1:00 pm)

On October 27th, the fourth and fifth grade students participated in a READ-A-THON to support 5th grade camp. The fourth and fifth graders read from 9:30 am to 1:00 pm. (This was an early release day for Arbor Heights.) Each student monitored their own reading during the READ-A-THON and teachers signed off on the total number of pages read. Students collected pledges and every dollar donated helps decrease the camp costs for the students.

WALK-A-THON - Friday, April 15th 2011 (1:00 pm - 3:00 pm)

On April 15th, the fourth and fifth grade students participated in a WALK-A-THON to support 5th grade camp. The details are on the 5th Grade Walkathon pdf file. The volunteer form and pledge form are also available as pdf files.

Students collect pledges for this walking fundraiser. A single donation or a pledge per mile can be donated. Students bring back the pledge sheets on or before the day of the WALK-A-THON. Every dollar donated will help to decrease the camp costs for all students.
