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, BUT they WILL be turned in at the beginning of the retreat, and you will get it back as you are being picked up. You can bring ipods, books, or something else that helps you relax, however you are only allowed to use them during down time (before bed, when you wake up, or body on bunk time). If your items are seen during activities or during the day they will be taken away until pick up time on Sunday and handed to the adult picking you up. If you plan to bring an ipod, make sure that all of your music is sensored and GIRL SCOUT appropriate.
If a PA is on their cell phone after the opportunity was given for them to turn them in, they will be sent home and their parent will need to come pick them up. This means they will not be a PA this year. We have had too many cell phone problems causing every one to lose the privelege.
You, and only you, are responsible for your belongings.
