• These are the dates for our trips and experiences in 5ST this year.  Some trips will need chaperones; they are italicized.  
    Check and mark your calendars! Let me know if you are interested in attending any of our trips this year.  I will also send out an email prior to each trip to confirm and look for volunteers.
    Thank you for your flexibility; we are incredibly lucky with all the wonderful experiences we have through CBPA!
