2019-20 - 6TH GRADE CAMP

We are excited to announce that next year’s Sixth Grade Camp will be held at Camp Nuhop in Perrysville, from Monday, October 7, 2019 to Wednesday, October 9, 2019 and we hope that all students can attend. We will leave school on buses around 10:00 AM on Monday morning and return around 1:00 PM on Wednesday afternoon. All sixth grade classes will be attending the same camp together.

The cost for students to attend camp will be $147.50. This includes meals, classes, activities and lodging. You will receive more information and a request for camp payment in the first few weeks of 6th grade. Payment will be due Monday, September 16, 2019.

If you are interested in chaperoning Sixth Grade Camp next year, please note Camp Nuhop has changed the guidelines for volunteers. They are now required to stay overnight both nights at the camp and be willing to stay in cabins with students. The cost for chaperones is $50.00 and space is limited to a maximum of fourteen.

If you are interested, please complete THIS FORM and send a check for $50.00, made payable to Buckeye Intermediate School. This will reserve your spot. Chaperones will be accepted on a first come first serve basis and will be subject to a background check. The background check is an additional cost of $56.00. Sixth Grade Camp is a great adventure and we look forward to seeing you there!




Buckeye Intermediate has been recognized as an “Overall A” Award winner based on its state report card scores. By demonstrating high academic performance and building bright futures for students of every background and ability level, they have achieved this impressive achievement!
