Yosemite Trip for Eighth Graders

Monday, October 16 - Friday, October 20, 2023

During one week of the school year Graham eighth graders visit Yosemite through a NatureBridge environmental science program. Students stay in Curry Village for five days and four nights. They are led on day hikes by professional guides and experience a variety of science activities. Students sleep in sleeping bags in heated, waterproof tent cabins with some linens provided, such as pillows, towels and wool blankets. Graham teachers and parent volunteers chaperone the students.

Students meet at Graham at 7:30AM on Monday of the trip week, to be assigned Trail Groups and board buses. Students return to Graham by bus on Friday of that week at approximately 6:00PM.
