Camping Trips

Every year we go on two all school camping trips. The entire Chrysalis extended famiy is welcome to join us. A typical camping trip is 3 days, 2 nights long. School releases at 12:30 pm so that families and staff have time to drive to our campsite. Chrysalis tries to reserve a large area for tent camping in a big group at a discounted rate, usually $5-20 per person for the weekend, depending on the campground. On Saturday, the teachers and staff lead guided excursions to hike, bike, kayak, and explore the area. There's always campfire circles with songs and skits. Throughout the weekend, families can buy meals from the Chrysalis Camp Kitchen so that you don't have to worry about shopping, menu planning, or cooking equipment. Food is very reasonably priced and there‚Äôs a lovely community spirit in the kitchen and communal dining tables. We will ask each family to volunteer two times in the Camp Kitchen to help prepare the meal or clean up afterwards. 

Here's a list of where we've been lately, and where we are planning to go!
