In the evening before or after dinner, parents can help their child put up a tent or arrange a sleeping spot in a cabin or wall tent. Students and chaperones stay the night.
Friday, Aug. 30
Breakfast and lunch will be provided. Lessons and activities that day begin after breakfast at 9:30 AM. The school bus and parent volunteers will pick up students and gear from camp at 1:30 and bring them back to school. As usual, school buses will bring students home from ACSA at 4:05 PM.
