6th Grade Camp

Our Pepper Drive 6th Graders will be attending Camp Cuyamaca January 30th - February 3rd, 2023. A parent information meeting took place on Wednesday, December 14th. 6th Grade families had total amounts due and all the necessary paperwork sent home this week. That paperwork is DUE to their homeroom teachers before we go out on Winter Break.

The total cost of camp is $350. Payments can be made by Cash or Check (no credit) until May 2023.
