Halloween 2015

FYI folks- October 23, 2015 additional notes

A few last minute reminders:

  1. Mess Kits –  Please no disposable dinnerware, plates, etc.  Bob will set up a washing station in the main kitchen.
  2. Lunch – Don’t forget everyone needs first day lunch.  Suggest non-perishable meal unless you have an ice chest.
  3. Hydrate – Make sure your students have water and are drinking it.  Heat emergencies can occur quickly if students and adults are not hydrating properly. The caveat is drink before you are thirsty.
  4. Camp Meals – Each school is responsible for their own meals while at camp.  While there is a stove I would suggest bringing your own camp stove to prepare your meal.
  5. Snack – Nylen will provide a snack during the movie.  Hot dogs, popcorn and juice.
  6. First Aid – Primarily Mark Lee but all advisors should have a kit for their school. If any students have severe allergies etc. please let Mark no as soon as you can.  Remind students to bring their meds such as EPI pens and inhalers.
  7. Emergency – If we have a medical emergency or need to evacuate camp Jamie has the gate combo for our group. 
  8. FiresABSOLUTELY no open fires or other flames.  Be careful of camp stoves and gas lanterns near dry grass and remember that a hot engine exhaust pipe or catalytic converter can ignite a brush fire if a vehicle is parked in very high dry grass.
  9. Showers – Showers are gang style open bay.  Plan on showering in beachwear.  Fred may be bringing our HSHs portable shower but if not we will work out a rotation.
  10. Rules – All school rules apply. Remind students that any advisor or adult kokua at camp can correct any unsafe condition or actions at any time.  Advisors and kokua are also available to assist or answer questions.
