Class of 2020 Camp Bernie Trip

posted Oct 7, 2016, 1:04 PM by Ms. Danielle Salzberg


The Ninth Grade Trip to Camp Bernie is October 27-28.  The students must arrive at school on Thursday at 7:30AM and will return on Friday afternoon at 3:00PM.

This trip costs $140 per student for food, lodging and transportation.  We ask that all families who are able pay the full cost of this unique and special trip.  Families who cannot afford the full cost, should contact the school and contribute what they can.  We hope to raise enough funds to ensure ALL 9th graders can attend this trip; if you can contribute more than $140, the funds will be used to subsidize students in cohort 2020 and beyond who need support to participate.  

Here is a checklist of items that must be completed in order for a student to attend the trip

Click the link to access a copy of the form.  Paper copies will go home with students next week.

  • $140 check or money order

  • NYC DOE Permission Slip for the trip (most students returned this with the start-of-year forms)

  • Ridgewood YMCA Program Waiver (most students returned this with the start-of-year forms)

  • Medical Administration Form -- for students who need to bring ANY medication on the trip: prescription, non-prescription, inhaler, epi-pen, etc.  Medications must be in original labeled packaging and be marked with the student’s name.

Students will be talking more about what to expect at Camp Bernie in the coming weeks in Advisory.  If you have any questions, please email Mr. Evan Smith mr.smith@fmhsnyc.org or Ms. Leslie Mathes ms.mathes@fmhsnyc.org.

At Camp Bernie, students will forge life-long memories.  We are looking forward to a great trip!
