Summer Camp Information

Posted on Jul 12 2019 - 3:23pm

It’s almost time for summer camp!!!  Your leaders at camp for the week are Mr. Schaeffer, Mr. Pross, and Mrs. Leiggi.

I’m sorry for the late email, but it took a little time to figure out some logistics (thank you to the DiClaudio’s for pulling the trailer up to camp!).  Please meet at OLS by the trailer at 10:00 AM on Sunday morning.  Please arrive on time.  We will try to put as much of the boy’s bags in the trailer as possible because it can be driven into the campsite.  Anything that does not fit in the trailer will have to be carried/walked in.  We are staying in the Bayview campsite (camp map attached).  As a reminder, parents should plan to drive their boys to camp unless you have made other arrangements.  It takes about two hours to get there and check-in starts at 1:00 PM.  You may want to pack a bag lunch, or we can plan to stop on the way at a rest area for quick bite and a bathroom break.  Attached is a copy of the directions for your convenience.
