DROP OFF PACKED BELONGINGS Fri, 5/18 or Sunday, 5/20

We need all supplies dropped off BEFORE the Monday students leave for camp. Please drop off your child’s belongings at one of these two time ONLY, in a specially designated area for your child’s team.

All items need to be clearly marked with your child’s name (first, last, and team name) in marker or on masking tape.

  • Friday, May 18th between 4:00-4:30 pm
  • Sunday, May 20th between 3:00-4:30 pm

Parents needed to help manage this process. SIGN UP HERE TO BE A HERO. 

  • We need people to make sure items are labelled with first/last/team name and in the correct location for our Monday morning departure.
  • All student baggage should be dropped up the designated times Friday or Sunday before outdoor school .
  • For two of the teams, items are loaded into a UHaul well before students leave Cedar Park.  Volunteers will help each student double check labels on their gear.
  • On Monday before departure, we need volunteers to load everything onto the correct vehicle.  Packers will work with every student and be very busy for about half an hour.

 

STUDENT DROP OFF MONDAY, 5/21

We will have the challenge of loading about 350 students on 8 busses to 3 camps.

#1 - PLEASE arrange carpools with other families from your child’s school team (Amazon, Yukon, or Limerick). Each hall has different arrival and departure time in an effort to to minimize the number of cars in our parking lot that morning. Even so, parking will be crowded. There will be some overlap with our regular bus arrival, as well.

#2 - Help your 6th grader pack as efficiently as possible. Your child should be able to carry their own belongings.   Checklist & tips for packing for ODS can be found HERE. 

#3 - MOST IMPORTANT - We need volunteers to help. If you are interested in helping us (we can’t do this without you!) please use this Sign Up Genius to sign up for your student’s team: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f044dacae2daafd0-6thgrade
