Breaking Camp News

 

Here are some last minute reminders for camp:

 
*Send a lunch with your child for Thursday.  Bring one for yourself if you are coming to camp.
 
*It will be cold!  Send a winter jacket, gloves, a hat, and warm shoes or boots.  Raingear too!
 
*Roll an extra blanket into your child's sleeping bag.  Make sure to send a pad for underneath the sleeping bag too.  
 
*If you are driving to camp, and can throw some extra blankets or sleeping bags in your car, please do!  We might want to cover the whole tentfull with a blanket.
 
*Bring a coffee cup and a chair if you are an adult at camp.  
 
*Drop your child's gear on the south side of the building near the "amphitheater" steps.  You will see a UHAUL truck there.  
 
*We are leaving at 8:00 AM
 
Thanks to all who are volunteering!  It will be a wonderful two days and we are all ready to go!  

 

Dear Families,

Thanks for supporting our camping trip! The weather report looks promising.   We will be staying at Marshview campground at Baker Park in the Three Rivers Park District.  Directions are on the back.  If you need to reach us at camp, call Kristin’s cell phone at 612-695-5410.   Here are some last minute reminders:

Send Tents!

We need tents at school byTuesday.  We need to see how many we’ve got and label them with names of students using.  If you offered to lend a tent, we need it!  Put it in “Chicago,” at the end our hall.  Label all of the parts- the bag, the tent, the fly, the tarp.  

Other Equipment

If you offered a camp stove, you can drop that off any time, or bring it to camp if you are coming.  Lanterns too.  Coolers with ice can be delivered to school Thursday morning or brought right to camp if you are coming. Label everything!

Adults-

-Bring a chair for yourself.  Also a coffee cup.  

*Bring a snack to share with other adult chaperones.  It requires stamina to camp with kids, and you will need extra fuel. We’ll keep a coffee pot going all day.

For your kids-

-Send a bag lunch for Thursday.  (If you are going to be at camp, bring one for yourself, too.)  All other meals will be prepared in the camp kitchen.

*The menu and schedule are attached. “Frontloading” with info about camp is an anxiety-reducer.

*Send extra socks and a pair of boots.  Grass is wet in the morning.  We’ll play outside even if there is light rain.  Send a raincoat if you have one, and extra layers if you don’t.  

*It will be nice in the day and cold at night. Send a warm jacket and tuck an extra blanket in your sleeping bag.  Send warm pajamas or a sweatsuit for sleeping. Pack a hat.

Carpooling

If you are driving to camp, it’s nice to share rides with other parents to keep things greener.  Watch for a list of adult campers coming soon- think about sharing tent space too!

Two Reminders-

*Kids tents are just for kids- parents must sleep separately. Make sure you have a place to sleep!  

*It goes without saying, but we’re saying it anyway- school functions need to stay smoke and alcohol free.  

Thanks!  Dawn and Kristin
