“The Center City Public Charter School Brightwood Campus will be attending their 2nd annual camping trip this Spring. 60 middle school students will arrive at Echo Hill camp grounds where they will spend the night participating in the residential program. Students in Echo Hill’s residential programs become fully immersed in the outdoor environment. These residential programs are designed to complement classroom learning by providing unique opportunities for academic and social growth. Guided by Echo Hill teachers, students learn and interact with peers and teachers in a new and exciting environment.
We are asking that you help us get there!
*Money raised will help students who are not able to pay the full balance for the trip*”
The reader adds:
“Most of the student have never been exposed to the wonders of nature because they live in the city. Nearly every student is on free and reduced lunch and would not be able to pay for this trip on their own so we try to make it a free opportunity for all. Students take science classes at the Echo Hill camp ground, explore nature though guided hikes and participate in team-building and collaborative activities throughout the two days.”
