Camp Departure, Monday, January 23rd:
Bus Ride: Students are *not* to bring backpacks, snacks, water bottles, or luggage onto campus or on the bus. Please pack all backpacks and empty water bottles in your child’s luggage. Once luggage is loaded onto the truck, parents/students on campus will not have access to it, so please plan accordingly.
