Campus campout

Saturday, October 5 | 2 pm through
Sunday, October 6 | 11 am

Welcome to the 10th Annual Castle Heights Campus Campout! This event is sponsored by Friends of Castle Heights – an on-campus fundraising organization that is operated solely by our outstanding Castle Heights parent volunteers.

Campus Campout is an exceptionally fun and memorable event that takes place from Saturday, October 5rd until Sunday, October 6th on the Castle Heights campus. The event begins at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday when the Castle Heights Avenue gate opens to all campers.  At that point, you will locate your campsite and setup your tent and sleeping gear in preparation for staying the night at school!  Fun activities, including camp-themed arts & crafts and games will begin at 3:00 p.m. in Dudley’s Forest (aka the Faculty Parking Lot) and continue throughout dinnertime.  A catered BBQ dinner will be served continuously from 5:00 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. with a yummy dessert to follow.  Then join everyone in a “campfire” sing-a-long at 7:15 followed by a movie and popcorn beginning at 8:00 p.m. in the “Tamar Asken Amphitheater.” For those who sleep over, bagels, coffee and juice, will be provided bright and early Sunday morning while the early risers enjoy cartoons and yoga.

Campus Campout is endless fun for kids and parents alike. We hope you – the new, existing, and former Castle Heights families – will join us in all the fun this year! By the end of the event, we promise that you and your kids will be boasting the Campus Campout slogan along with us . . .

"I love this school so much . . . I stayed all night!"
