school trip to Joshua Tree
« on: July 11, 2004, 06:34:21 PM »
I'm going to be a senior in high school this coming year. Every senior needs to do a project of some kind of independant learning in order to graduate. My project involves taking a group of about 10 students to go rock climbing in Joshua Tree for about a week. I think that this trip would be so awesome for the students. They'll be learning how to climb as well as getting knowledge of the environment and learning who they are. It would certainly be unforgettable.

The problem: money. The trip is going to cost about $900 (maybe even more) per person. No normal high school student has the funds to pay for this, and their parents aren't exactly made out of money either. I would hate for money to get in the way of such an amazing oppurtunity. I'm beginning to look for businesses to ask for donations. I was thinking about a car wash, but that won't get us very much money.

Does anyone have any advice on what I can do to make this trip possible? Experiences of your own? Businesses that you know of that would be willing to donate any money?
