For all students- what to bring to registration:
First, students who wish to leave campus during down time need a permission slip signed by a parent or guardian. Please use the form to indicate specific times or dates, or indicate that the student has permission to leave during all down times. Down times are: 1 hour everyday during lunch, 1 hour during dinner, and 1.5 hours between the end of class and dorm check-in time every night.
Second, students need to bring a signed copy of the camp participant agreement. This document outlines some of the rules and policies of the camp, and is required for all students.
Don’t forget that our camp attempts to use a paperless model- if you have a laptop, please bring it with you!
For Residents, what to bring:
Each dorm unit is comprised of 2 bedrooms, each with 2 students. Each set of 2 bedrooms shares 1 bathroom. Students will need to bring their own toiletries, towels, pillows, and sheets (size Twin XL). There is a coin operated laundry facility in the dorm building. There is also a CVS Pharmacy in walking distance. Each room comes equipped with a mini-fridge and microwave.
Students can email firstname.lastname@example.org for roommate assignments 2 weeks prior to camp.
