Before you know it, the camping season will be here. We're gearing up for the summer here at Ransburg and want to pass on some information to help you get your troop ready for camp.
First, take some time to get familiar with the online planner. The planner is your link to camp before you get here. In the planner, you'll be able to sign your youth up for the activities they'd like to be involved in. It is to your unit's benefit to plan ahead and register as soon as you can.
Second, be talking to your youth and your unit about getting organized for camp. Some things you can do to help you get ready are:
1) Emailing any dietary restrictions or special needs to firstname.lastname@example.org. This information is needed, at the latest, two weeks before your unit gets to camp. The more information we have about these dietary restrictions, the better. We would also like to be able to speak to the parents of any youth with a dietary restriction; we don't want to wind up being underprepared.
2) Sending in copies of your signed health forms in advance will let us catch any errors before we get to camp. For example, if your doctor hasn't put a date next to his signature you'll be able to correct that at home than here at camp. As above, we request that you send these forms in for review at least two weeks before you arrive at camp.
3) Sending in copies of your pre-camp swim checks will make sure that your youth won't have to take the swim check here at camp. Sunday's go a lot smoother for your unit when you don't have to wait in line on the docks! These documents are requested at least two weeks before you get to camp.
If you have any questions, please get in touch with us. We want to make sure your camping experience is exceptional!
