Outdoor ed meeting info (20th - 23rd March)


I have attached some details that were discussed at our Outdoor ed meeting 


Outdoor ed trip will be 20th -  23rd March 2018
We will be going to http://www.allianceredwoods.com
The cost per child is $198.04


Day 1 - The kids need a good breakfast and a disposable
lunch (brown bag or something that can be thrown away)
Bus will leave by around 9am to be at the beach by around 12pm.
We will have lunch as soon as we land at the beach.
It is a new venue for us this year but still in the same area,
Occidental CA.
We need 6 female chaperones and 4 male chaperones this year to
allow a ratio of 1 adult per 7 kids.


Volunteers should submit their application forms for
being a chaperone tomorrow.
(any questions or problems please email me rmckillion@stmsf.org)


Keep in mind that the chaperones will be in charge of 7
kids all day long and will be sleeping in the same cabin as the kids.
You will be hiking and staying along with the kids as they do their
activities throughout the day.


Kids should take a spare trash bag for dirty clothes and shoes.


We may not be the only school on site at the time, last year
there were 4 schools there at the same time, however we don’t
have shared activities and the schools rarely even see each other.
One of the only times the kids will see the other groups is
at meal times.
