Camp is HERE! We will be heading to camp on Monday, May 23rd! Please see the camp handbook and additional information below.

Drop your child off between 8:45 and 9:00 at the circle drive in the front of the school.  PLEASE do not arrive earlier.  We need to allow time for k-4 grade students to arrive using the  normal drop-off procedures at the circle drive.

CAMP HANDBOOK

Camp Reminders/Check-In Procedures

DON’T FORGET!!!

Bring a sack lunch  with your child’s name and teacher’s name on it.

 

  • Your child’s name must be clearly marked on luggage, sleeping bag and pillow.  Masking tape works really well for this.  (see camp handbook for packing list)

 

  • All medication must be in its original container.  

 

  • No electronic devices.

 

  • Any cash brought to camp is the responsibility of the camper.

 

Check In/Check Out

Drop your child off between 8:45 and 9:00 at the circle drive in the front of the school.  PLEASE do not arrive earlier.  We need to allow time for k-4 grade students to arrive using the  normal drop-off procedures at the circle drive.

LOOK for your child’s teacher upon arrival so they can check your child in, and mark them as in attendance.  Please do each of these steps to properly and safely check in your child before you leave.

 

  • Medication drop-off– Any medication to be administered needs to be in its original container, clearly marked with your child’s name.  An adult will cross check to make sure all medication left is listed on the med form you sent in giving written permission to administer medication.

 

  • Lunch Check In– A volunteer will check for a teacher’s & student’s name on the lunch  and place your child’s lunch in the appropriate box.

 

  • Tagging Luggage– A colored tape will be placed on your child’s luggage to help identify it upon arrival at camp.

 

  • Luggage Drop Off Luggage will be given to volunteers to load and take to camp.

 

* Plan on being back at Georgetown Elementary at 7:00 on Tuesday, May 24 to pick up your TIRED camper.   🙂

Looking ahead

Wow! I can hardly believe we are a few short days away from 5th grade camp.  I told the kids I would attach a packing list if they wanted to start gathering things together. Camp Packing List

Also, I want to invite parents to drive up and visit their kids at Camp Pinewood and join in the fun. You are welcome to come and spend the day, or part of a day. We only ask that if you plan to join us for a meal that you bring in $7.50 to cover the cost of that meal. You may always bring your own meal if you prefer that option. :)

Look for a Reminder/Checklist to come home today with your child.
