6th Grade Trip 2018
Dear 6G Parents and Guardians,
Every year the 6th grade goes on an overnight trip during the first cycle in order to develop social connections and experience something new together as a community. This is a memorable experience for all ICE community members who attend, and we believe it is invaluable for the students.
This year’s trip is scheduled for November 1 – 2, 2018.
The cost of the trip is $250 per student. You can set up a payment plan or make full payment below. If possible we ask families who have the means to sponsor another student or donate an extra $100 to assist. The options are listed below.
We expect all students to participate in this trip regardless of the families’ ability to pay. All families are expected to make a payment but if families need help, email your Advisory Teacher and we will find a plan to help you manage the payments. If the payment is unmanageable, we will help provide assistance.
The trip will consist of programming that includes team-building activities, forest ecology, sensory awareness, outdoor survival, and s’mores by a campfire at night.
Destination: Green Chimneys Clearpool Campus
Location: Carmel, NY

ICE departure time: 8:00 a.m.
ICE arrival time: 2:00 p.m

Cost includes accommodations, transportation, programming, meals, chaperones, and 24 hour on-call nurse
If you are able to pay more than the required amount, your generosity will go towards ensuring all students can attend the trip.
If you are unable to pay in full at this time, contact your student’s advisor. This will not prevent your student from attending the trip.
What to do:
Enclosed is a packing list. Please make sure your student brings the required clothing and supplies. Contact your student’s advisor if you are unable to find/borrow/acquire any of the items.
Contact Natalie Mack (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are interested in chaperoning! We need as many chaperones as we can get! Chaperones do not need to pay to attend the trip.
We are looking forward to a beautiful trip and a wonderful school year!
