Inappropriate clothing and footwear may result in the participant sitting out. Participants will be partaking in water activities at Marion Lake. Please make sure they have bathing suits and a towel.

Lunch is not provided. Please ensure your child has a lunch (nut free), snacks and water for the day.

Electronics and Personal Toys: Electronics and personal toys are prohibited at Wild & Immersive camps. If it is necessary for the child to have an electronic for safety reasons (ie: a cell phone), it must stay in the child’s bag during camp activities.
