Irvine Ranch Outdoor Education Center – Overnight Camp

We have facilitated an opportunity for the Lowell 5th grade students to participate in a 3-day/2-night overnight camp at IRVINE RANCH OUTDOOR EDUCATION CENTER on June 1-3, 2018. 5th graders from Lowell have participated in this camp for the last three to four years and many current 5thgrade parents have had their former 5th graders participate.  The cost of the camp is $180 per child.

Parent drop off is on Friday, June 1, between 12:30-1: 00 pm at 2 Irvine Park Road • Orange, CA 92869.  Please note the drop off time and that if you take your child out of school more than 30 minutes early, it is considered an unexcused late. Lowell does not advocate an early pickup but by arriving early on Friday, the children will be able to participate in more of the immersion programs that the camp offers.  Pick up from camp is Sunday, June 3, at 10:00 am.

Kids sleep on bunk beds in gender-separate bunkhouses. The camp provides counselors during the day activities, as well as, counselors assigned to each bunkhouse. The flyers give more information about the counselors.

Attached are flyers on activitiesmenus and dietary restrictions, sleeping arrangements, things to bring (and not bring) and how to deal with medical (medication) concerns.
