Every year, fifth grade students at Prairie Ridge Elementary spend three days immersed in the outdoors. At CalWood Environmental Camp, students stay from Wednesday to Friday, learning Homesteading and Orienteering skills. The idea came up two years ago, when staff wanted to create a signature event that fifth graders would remember. “We have kids from last year coming back and reminiscing about our trip to Cal-Wood.” says Jeff Cannon, a fifth grade teacher at Prairie Ridge.
