Our fifth grade students will again travel to Camp Kon-O-Kwee for their annual outdoor education program this year. The camp is operated by the YMCA and is located in Fombell, PA. The three-day camp experience includes environmental education lessons and outdoor living activities that focus on hands-on active participation. Of course, making memories is included in the experience, too! While science, art and environmental studies are the center of the planned lessons, lots of fun is included for both students and teachers.

Parents interested in learning more about the Camp Kon-O-Kwee program should plan to attend the Fifth Grade Curriculum Night presentation at their home school. A presentation will be made by the fifth grade teachers at each elementary school. Details will be given about the camp experience and information shared with parents.
Any parent who has a fifth grader with a health condition should be in touch with his/her school health office prior to the trip.
The cost for Camp Kon-O-Kwee is $125 and checks should be made payable to North Allegheny School District. Information about participation, permission slips and payment will be sent home shortly after the start of school.
