Summary: Mt. Diablo Unified in partnership with Friends of Camp Concord and the City of Concord has the opportunity to send 200 district students (160 elementary students-Bel Air, Cambridge, Delta View, Fair Oaks, El Monte, Holbrook, Meadow Homes, Rio Vista, Shore Acres, Sun Terrace, Wren Avenue, Ygnacio Valley and 40 middle school students- Riverview, El Dorado and Oak Grove) who attend the CARES After School Program to Camp Concord in Tahoe, California. This partnership has been in existence since 2002. Friends of Camp Concord (FOCC) was established in 1983 and is a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting the Camp. The money raised by FOCC is directed to a campership program allowing underprivileged children to attend resident camp free. The total valued cost of this field trip is $19,800 ($13,800 for the elementary schools and $6,000 for the middle schools) in which $12,000 is funded by Friends of Camp Concord. Total fiscal impact to Mt. Diablo CARES After School Program is $7,800.

The Elementary weekend session will be Friday May 17-19th, 2019 and the Middle School week session will be Monday June 24-28th, 2019. The Friends of Camp Concord (FOCC) Youth Camp at Camp Concord provides well-trained camp staff, facilities, equipment, and a unique group living situation. All FOCC and CARES After School staff have undergone a background check and fingerprinted. All students that attend will be required to complete the FOCC forms and waivers for program participation. The impact of this experience is an organized resident camp environment that is focused on teamwork, creativity, communication and collaboration. This environment helps children develop their potential by teaching them new life skills, provide new opportunities for personal growth, encouraging them to take healthy risks, connect to the natural world around them, and be accepted as part of a distinctive cabin group. This ongoing collaboration and partnership has been an invaluable experience for MDUSD students.
