Medication All necessary medications must be in the original bottle/container. If you intend to use the medicine your student has at school, you must call Judy at 541-6220 in the nurses office to let her know. Please include only the amount needed for the duration of the trip and fill out the pink paperwork that explains the prescription. After the trip YOU must come and get the medicine from the administrator.
Please bring the medicine to the school -3 days prior to trip with all paperwork filled out in a marked ziplock. At camp, medications will be distributed by a staff member. If your child has an inhaler, please send it with them. They can carry it themselves.
What to Bring Students can bring breakfast food to eat on the bus. No Coolers. All food will be thrown away once we arrive at camp. There is limited space so please follow the packing list. Water bottle and camera labeled with name on it. All the meals are provided by the cafeteria camp. Label all personal items and have the sleeping bag and pillow in a garbage bag clearly labeled. If your child would like to bring their cell phone, they will be collected at the start of camp and held onto by a teacher until the bus ride home. (Students will NOT have access to their phone during camp.)
What NOT to Bring Do not pack food, it will be confiscated. Absolutely no ipods/electronics are allowed. We are not responsible for theft of personal items.
Why? BECAUSE WE BELIEVE that staying at camp fosters a unique phenomenon called “temporary community”. Participants find themselves interacting with each other in different ways. We are CRAZY!

Lots of Different Styles Chaperones, teachers and students all have different techniques. Let’s work together. Behavior at all times should reflect that which is appropriate in a school environment (zero tolerance for smoking or other chemical substances, foul language, fighting, etc.). A student or parent who breaks rules or becomes a disciplinary problem may be required to leave camp.
