Our fifth grade students participate in the Outdoor Education Program at Camp Pendalouan in September and October. The YMCA facility is a four-season camp nestled in a secluded bay of Big Blue Lake in Montague, Michigan. The 210-acre camp is adjacent to the Manistee National Forest and the White River.
White Pines fifth grade students spend two-days and overnight at camp partipating in a wide variety of outdoor group activities. Students are responsible for the $75 cost of camp, but a fund raising event that allows students to earn money for their tuition cost is provided.
Parents will need to complete a Student/Camper Health Form for their child. If students wish to participate in the High Ropes Course, parents must also submit a consent form for this activity. Lastly, students who receive daily OTC or prescription medications will need to submit a Medication Form to the school prior to departure. Online links to these forms are below.
All students should reference the Camper Checklist for a list of items they should bring and not bring to camp. Parents interested in participating in the Outdoor Education must complete and submit a Volunteer Assessment Form.
