Camp Tall Timber - 5th Grade Camp

Each year all 5th grade students visit Camp Tall Timber for a week of outdoor education. 5th grade parents will begin hearing about camp in September with plenty of time and opportunities to raise funds and prepare for the experience. 


Camp History

  • Camp has been a tradition at Sacajawea for over 37 years.
  • Hundreds of volunteer hours go into making an unforgettable program for our 5th graders.
  • The staff at Tall Timber Ranch look forward to  our program each year because of its quality and how well behaved our students are.
  • In collaboration with our PTO, students have the opportunity to earn all or part of the tuition by participating in the fall fundraiser or other parent sponsored events.


Program Objectives
