Friends of Reed – Humanities Academy

6th Grade Pali Camp

Humanities Academy offers an overnight field trip at every grade level. For 6th grade, that trip is to Pali Camp, located in the San Bernardino Mountains near Lake Arrowhead. Pali Camp is not only an educational experience, meeting some of our science standards, but it is also a trip where students get a chance to meet the kids in their academy away from school and bond with them on a personal level. Beyond that, it is also a time where they are met with individual challenges, team building, and have an opportunity to overcome and grow alongside their school community. The trip is lead by Ms. Siminski along with the other 6th grade Humanities teachers, and has become a truly wonderful experience for our 6th graders to share.
