Greetings from Camp Cuyamaca - Day 3

Greetings from camp!

This morning, we all met with our "Tiger's Den" and found out that all the "I CARE" cards went to our CPMS kids. Way to go! 

Today was our "All Day Hike Day" and everyone went off in a wide variety of hikes. Mrs. Burke's group went up the big mountain, just to the East of camp. The group chose the challenging hike. We hoofed up the mountain and all the kids were so kind and thoughtful to make sure that Mrs. Burke was keeping up. It was a challenge! Once up to the top, we hiked across to East Mesa, a beautiful day with a bit of a breeze. We then had a well earned lunch. The whole group was a great group of hikers and very positive and supportive of each other:)
After we got down the mountain, it was surprising how quickly the kids recuperated and were all out at recess:)  The game of "GaGa Ball" was interesting and exciting!

Pizza and oranges were gobbled up at dinner and after cabin time, we will all be back at the dining hall to hear and see some amazing talent at the camp talent show. 

Ms. Guiten, Mr. Nielsen, Mrs. Burke @ Camp Cuyamaca
(Thanks for taking such good care of our Tigers!

And already, tomorrow is Friday! The kids will be up and getting ready to say goodbye. Before we know it, back to town and CPMS:)

See you all then, 
Mrs. Burke, Miss Guiten and Mr. Nielsen

7th Grade Science!!!

Tiger Families:

We would like to thank our friends 
from the County Department of Environmental Health 
in the Hazardous Materials Division 
for spending the day at College Prep 
to present a variety of AMAZING experiments 
to enhance our 7th Grade Science curriculum.


We really appreciate them coming out to support our school 
and to provide real life applications to the Science 
that our students are learning here at school.


I think we now have some future HazMat recruits:)

Go Scientific Tigers!!!

Greetings from Camp Cuyamaca - Day 2

Greetings!

What a beautiful day up at camp. The sun was shining and all our 6th grade campers were as well:) 

Today we started with crafts. This is where 6th graders can choose between working with rock or wood. Both are then made smooth by sanding and shaping into a beautiful works of art. It takes lots of hard work and several hours. The day was beautiful and the students all worked outside in the fresh mountain air. 
After lunch, everyone went off in different directions with their hike groups to explore and learn about nature. All of our CPMS students were able to share what they were learning and what they knew as well.  We even saw some wild turkeys this morning!
This evening's program was Native American games and a chance to try to start a fire by using a bow and stick. This was a real group effort and I enjoyed watching the teamwork needed to make it happen!

Everyone is now settling in their cabins for some well earned sleep.

Until tomorrow, good night from Camp Cuyamaca, 
Mrs. Burke

Greetings from Camp Cuyamaca - Day 1!

Greetings from Camp Cuyamaca!
A beautiful day in the Cuyamaca Mountains!

We all had a nice ride up the mountain
and all the kids were happy to get off the bus
and begin their adventure:)

We are in the Cedar Village this year,
which is the newest dorms and the most room for campers.
Everyone seemed to have smiles on their faces
as they all were at lunch.  After lunch, hike groups went on "Welcome" hikes throughout the valley around camp.

Once back, it was time for afternoon recess.
Mrs. Burke was in the girl's dorm for games of Twister and
saw lots of happy faces, running in and out playing.
There is a new game that Mr. Nielsen was in charge of, called
"GaGa Ball." It's an interesting variation of dodge ball.

A delicious dinner of Fajitas was gobbled up
by hungry 6th graders.

Now, everyone is out singing and hearing funny stories
around the campfire.  Soon it will be cabin time
and time to settle in for some well earned sleep.

Tomorrow will be a nature hike
and camp crafts of rock or wood.

Until then, good night from Camp Cuyamaca:)
Mrs. Burke, Miss Guiten and Mr. Nielsen
