LONG BEACH POLY NORTH
Poly North was created in 1973 due to the escalation of racial tensions in the Long Beach community. Since then, Poly North's mission is to provide students with an open forum to develop and communicate their values, create cultural awareness, embrace differences, and make life long friendships. Over the years Poly North has become Poly's most cherished off campus student program. The Poly North Staff encourage, inspire, and rally the leaders of tomorrow to use their talents to create positive changes in our community.
Poly North Staff are all volunteers. The cost per camp for facilities, food, transportation, and supplies is approximately $20,000. The money raised through the Long Beach Marathon will go directly towards paying for students who cannot afford to attend camp and to lower the costs of camp for all students.
Thank you very much for supporting Poly North! We aim to make the world a "kind" and better place, one camp at a time.
