Outdoor Adventure Estes Park!  Calling All 6th Grade!

Join us Wednesday thru Friday, October 8th-10th for 3 days of fun and learning at the Estes Park Center  YMCA of the Rockies.  Legacy Academy has reserved the Pattie Hyde Barclay Reunion cabin for our lodging.  Students will attend classes designed to meet Colorado State education standards, and relax with activities of their choice such as the Center’s pool, our lodge, shooting some hoops, or creating crafts in the craft barn.  

When students were asked on a survey after last year’s trip, “What would you tell next year's 6th graders about Outdoor Education”, students said:

“Be ready for some fun!”

“That this trip will be impacting you for life!”

“I would tell them that they are going to have an amazing time in Estes Park!”

Dates: October 8, 9, 10th, 2014

Cost: $180.00 (includes transportation, lodging, classes, and all meals and snacks)

Final Payments: After the deposit of $50, the final 2 payments of $65 each need to be made by September 25th, and October 2nd.  Partial scholarships are available as we do not want anyone to miss out on this fantastic learning opportunity.  Need Volunteer hours?  Each $10 put towards the student Scholarship Fund for Outdoor Education counts towards 1 hour of volunteer service.

Dear 8th Grade Parents,

It is never too early to start thinking about Washington DC in the spring of 2015!  Over the last two years we have partnered with Close Up to provide our students with a trip of a lifetime!  The trip is a chance to explore our nation’s capital along with 100 other 8th graders and participate in wonderful tours and activities.  All the Legacy students who have gone would highly recommend it to their underclassmen.  We already have students signed up making payments, so if you are interested email matt.parish@legacyk8.org.  You can check out www.closeup.org for more information and plan on attending the parent meeting in the first couple weeks of school.  We would love to have every 8th grader at least contemplate the option of going!
