8th Grade Pali Science Camp

Dear Parents and Guardians of Eighth Grade Students,


It is with great enthusiasm that I write to you about an exciting opportunity available to Adams’ eighth grade students!  Pali Institution is a science camp in Running Springs, CA that will provide our students with an amazing experience that has the potential to not only increase their knowledge and interest in science, but may spark a life-long passion for learning.


We only have reservations for 115 eighth grade students.  Participating students will have the opportunity to visit Pali Institution for a three-day, two-night excursion from February 9 – February 11, 2022.  At Pali, students will participate in active, hands-on learning experiences in ecology, outdoor education, engineering, leadership, and more.  Through an innovative curriculum and professional outdoor staff, students will experience the thrill of seeing, touching and learning about the world around them. As an 8th grader, students will get to participate in high ropes and zip lining.


Students are housed in gender-specific dorms with camp staff as chaperones.  The cost for each student is $390; cost includes camp and bus transportation fees.  Due to increased transportation and fuel costs, you will notice the price for camp attendance has slightly increased this year.


If you would like to reserve a spot for your child to attend Pali Camp, please do the following steps. First, send a $195 non-refundable deposit (cash or check) to Mrs. Juarez in the main office by Wednesday, December 15, 2021.  You may also pay by credit card on the ASB Web Store, please click HERE to go to the Adams Website. Second, complete the form attached (column to the right) and turn into Mrs. Juarez. Reservations are accepted on a FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED basis.  Once all spaces are filled, students will be placed on a "wait list."  We will contact you if a space opens up and your child is eligible to go.  Please note: grades and citizenship scores will determine student eligibility to attend camp. The reservation is not confirmed until you have seen Mrs. Juarez with the correct paperwork.


Please make checks payable to Adams Middle School.  Final payment is due no later than Friday, January 14, 2022.

We hope our participating eighth grade students will have an experience at Pali Camp that they will never forget!


There will be a parent/student meeting on Tuesday, January 11, 2022 at 6:00 p.m. location TBD. We will be discussing important information regarding the trip, so we hope you can join us.
