Please take note of the dates.. We live in Washington, it WILL BE COLD!! Please come prepared. You are welcome to bring hot hands, toe warmers, and such. Please take note to the items in red. We don't want any cold kids this year.
NOTE: You are welcome to bring cell phones and ipods, BUT you are only allowed to use them during down time (before bed or when you wake up). All cell phones and ipods seen during activities or during the day will be taken away until pick up time on Sunday. If you plan to bring an ipod, make sure that all of your music is sensored and GIRL SCOUT appropriate. This is a privilege, not many girl scout events allow this. How you respect this boundary decides whether they will be allowed at future PA events.
You, and only you, are responsible for your belongings.
