6th and 7th Grade Camp
Friday, November 1 @ 12:00 pm - Sunday, November 3 @ 12:30 pm
IT’S ALMOST TIME FOR CAMP!
Our 6th and 7th Graders spend an amazing weekend in the mountains at their weekend retreat! We’re excited to be going back to Camp Mountain Chai in Angelus Oaks. The weather is predicted to have highs in the 60’s and lows in the 20’s…. so please dress appropriately and prepare to layer up. The recommended packing list for the weekend is below and includes all suggested items to pack to be ready for the weekend!
Drop off on Friday will begin at 11:30am – to avoid as much traffic as possible, the bus will be pulling out of the parking lot at 12:00 PM — so please be at the CBI parking lot in front of the grand staircase on time. Lunch will not be provided on the way up, however campers can eat on the bus if they choose. (Please remember that there is a no nut policy in regards to what they eat.) Additionally, Nurse Jenna will be at the check-in table to collect any medications.
If your child is not going to camp, there will be no school on Sunday and you will receive an email regarding an activity that should be completed and turned in the following Sunday.
