First of all, we would like to thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to join us for this adventure. Your role is so vital and the program would not be able to run without you. Now you might be asking yourself exactly what it is you should do while you are here. First off, the teachers will have specific instructions for you, especially while you are not in class. But, during class there are some things you can do that will make our classes run a lot smoother. First of all, do everything the kids do! When we ask for the kids to follow directions, they will look to you for example! Get involved! If you participate in the class along with the students not only will you learn amazing things, but it will make this experience far more exciting for you. Also, put away your phones! Take this time to enjoy the beautiful forest that surrounds you. Phones will distract from our class, so if you must use your phone please do it discretely and away from the students.
Did you check the Packing List?
Bring lots of warm layers!
Get lots of sleep before arriving!
We do have Wifi and some cell reception. We ask that you do not use your phone around the students, if need be you can step away from the group to use your phones. We do have a lounge as a special space for chaperones to rest and recuperate.
Check out our FAQs to help answer any questions!
To show our gratitude for your time and efforts we have provided a salad bar in the cafeteria that is a special treat. Full of lots of fruit and vegetables, you will be fully stocked with goodies that will help you get through the day.
We also offer lots of coffee (caffeinated and decaffeinated) and tea. Please help yourself! And bring a reusable thermos to enjoy your beverage in an earth friendly way.
And when you get a moment free we offer a sanctum with couches for you to relax in. There will also be a soda machine for you to purchase soft beverages.
Remember, this is a special treat for you so we must ask that you do not share the salad bar with the students, nor bring the soda around them (it would not seem fair to them that you have soda and they cannot).
