Evening Drop-in Activities
Family activities will be offered on Saturday from 6:30 p.m. – 7:45 p.m. before campfire.
On Saturday night, our staff will be running night patrol. This means parents can put their kids to bed, and then leave them in the care of our staff. The staff will be in each building to ensure kids are safe and sleeping well. Night patrol will begin at 9:00 p.m., however, it would be appreciated if the kids were settled and in bed before parents leave. Night patrol will end at 10:45 p.m. so parents should make sure they return to the sleeping areas by that time.
On Saturday evening, adults will have the opportunity to mingle and relax with all the other adults attending the weekend. This relaxing time will take place in The Pavillion (Dining Hall).
