Feb 26 - 28, 2024

Dear families,


We are beyond thrilled to offer a 5th grade Outdoor Education Overnight Trip! From Feb. 26-28, your student and teachers will be embarking on an adventure to the Catalina Island Marine Institute at Toyon Bay (CIMI), which provides your child opportunities for discovery in marine science and ocean adventure. Please click the links on this page to view a virtual visit, read answers to frequently asked questions, and review the health and safety protocols at camp.

The overall cost of this unforgettable experience is $400 per student. This includes:


  • Student participation fee (including all labs and snorkeling!) for 3 days and 2 nights

  • Meals while at camp

  • Transportation via charter ferry


We are holding an Info Session exclusively for 5th grade families at Back to School Night on Wednesday, September 27th at 5:00pm in the MPR! We will provide a presentation on CIMI, answer your questions, and discuss fundraising options for camperships as this is a trip for ALL students.


We ask that you read and consider the intent options, as the Intent Form is due by Wed, Oct 11. Know that we will work with families in need of financial assistance through camperships; all fifth-grade students are welcome to attend. Accepted payment options include cash or checks made out to Village View Elementary School (please write CIMI in the memo).


We look forward to bringing this amazing adventure to our fifth graders!



Ms. Benane & the CIMI Team
