Science Camp-2017-Mission Springs-May 2nd – May 5th
*Please be at Good Samaritan Church on Tuesday morning, May 2nd at 7:45 a.m. This will give us time to load the bus and our luggage. We must leave no later than 8:15; we cannot wait for late students. The camp is roughly 3 hours away. We should arrive at Mission Springs around 1 p.m., this includes a lunch stop at Sky Park in Scotts Valley.
PLEASE PROVIDE A SACK LUNCH FOR THIS DAY! Students needing a school sack lunch will need to let us know soon via the permission slip form.
*We need one or two volunteer drivers with a trailer to haul our luggage to and from camp. Trailers have been stored at camp, if needed. The trailer is a must. There is not enough space on the bus for the luggage for 90+ people. Please let us know as soon as possible, if you are able to help with this.
*Science camp packets are due, Monday, March 6th. The camp needs adequate time to review paperwork and reserve space for our school. If your child is not attending science camp, please send a note informing your teacher.
*Please review your child’s packing list carefully. This list is included in your informational packet. Our last day will be a beach day, students will be asked to pack spare clothing in their backpacks for a dry ride home. Keep this packing list in a safe spot for future reference. You can also access this information on their website.
*Students are limited to a sleeping bag, pillow and one suitcase. Please pack a few pairs of extra socks in case it is raining while we are there. Electronics are ONLY allowed on the bus ride to and from. Electronics must be sent in a labeled ziplock bag. They will be collected when getting off the bus at camp and will be distributed to students on the bus ride home. Electronics are not allowed at the camp.
*Students will return to Jenny Lind Elementary on Friday at around 4:00 p.m. We plan on leaving the beach at roughly 12:30 p.m. on Friday.
*School rules need to be followed at Science Camp. The camp will also have guidelines and rules to follow. Please read your informational packet carefully. We want everyone to have an enjoyable, but safe time. Please tell your child to use their best judgment at all times. Parents and administration will be notified if necessary. Please note that science camp is a privilege and must be earned by all students.
*All medications must be sent in a labeled Ziploc bag with correct dosages. If your child has medication at JLE please let us know so we can get the medication from the office. All medication (even Tylenol, allergy medicine, etc.) must be documented on the science camp packet. This doctor’s release is imperative; no other medications can be sent without this documentation. There are NO EXCEPTIONS to ANY medications over the counter or prescribed. There is a strict protocol that we must follow.
