This is a one week sleep away camp that immerses the children in nature and allows them to explore a way of learning that cannot be achieved in a classroom. Every year the car show gives a portion of the proceeds to each grade levels camp account, and for our 5th graders that particular year it provides scholarship opportunities so that every child has access to this amazing adventure.

Additionally, the funds raised from this show impact multiple areas on our school campus. Starting with funding the general Parent Teachers Organization account, which provides essentials for our teacher’s classrooms (paper, pencils, and workbook subscriptions). Money from the car show also provides funding for PE Equipment and Library books. Learn more.
