• Camp Timber-lee Information

    Fifth graders across District 65 have the opportunity to participate in the annual Bob Gilbert Outdoor Education Program (Camp Timber-lee) each spring. Approximately 90 miles from Chicago, the camp is located in East Troy, Wisconsin. Students attend camp for two days (overnight) during the week of April 8, 2019. Specific dates are assigned by school.

    Information is shared with fifth grade families each spring. Parents/guardians are asked to complete permission forms and to review the Camp Timber-lee Student Handbook for details about the camp experience. An information session is also held prior to the visit.

    Camp fees are handled via the district office. Payments can be made online. If another method of payment is preferred, or if you have any questions, please contact Olivia Trejo at (847) 859-8016 or trejoo@district65.net. Full and partial fee waivers are available.

    Donations to Camp Timber-lee keep camp fees below cost and they provide opportunities for students who otherwise wouldn’t be able to attend. Without donations, the district would not be able to support its commitment to making camp a possibility for every student. Please consider making a donation.
