7th Grade Yosemite Trip
Paradise Charter Middle School's 7th grade will visit one of the most photographed places on the planet. In May you will discover why people travel from around the globe to visit this national park.
Throughout this trip, you will have the chance to do some gemstone mining and try your skills on an outdoor climbing tower. Next we will walk down deep into Moaning Cavern. The spectacular vertical main chamber is large enough to hold the entire Statue of Liberty. We will descend on a 100 foot spiral staircase where the history and geology of the cavern are described.
Next we will head to the town of Groveland for a pizza dinner. We will spend the night in a church and get up the next morning for our day trip to YOSEMITE. In Yosemite we will stop at a few famous spots and go to the Visitor Center. You will view the granite monoliths El Capitan and Half Dome. We will then take a challenging hike that will test our endurance. When you are absolutely exhausted we will pile in the cars and head home. On the way we will stop for dinner at In-N-Out Burger and be back at the school that night.
