WHAT TO BRING

Some minimal outdoor gear is required to ensure the comfort and safety of students.  Please feel free to leave gear on campus, or send it to school each day. 

 

“There is no such thing as bad weather; only bad clothing!”

WATER BOTTLE & SNACK

Provide fresh water each day.

CLOSE-TOED SHOES

Flip-flops or open-toed sandals are not allowed on the campus at WBNS.  Crocs or sandals with holes are fine, as long as the toe is covered.  In wet or cold weather, sneakers are okay but rubber boots or Bogs are preferred.

WATERPROOF RAIN JACKET

This item is the most important.  Please be sure the jacket is waterproof & not just water-resistant.  Send this every day, or leave on campus; rain can be unpredictable.

LAYERS & WARM CLOTHES

Please pack a small bag of clothes

(Socks ~ T-shirt ~ Warm Shirt ~ Pants) that can stay on campus in case your child gets wet or cold.

Warning / Disclaimer:

Due to the “nature” of this program…. There are inherent risks and dangers associated with the great outdoors.  We will be playing in the forest & on the farm, and might encounter stinging insects, venomous snakes, poison ivy, briars, and thorns, sprained ankles, bumps/bruises, cuts/scrapes.  Counselors are CPR & 1st Aid-trained, and will be ready should any accidents or incidents occur.  Parents will be contacted immediately in the event of a serious injury. 

 

Students will be educated the first week on our safety protocol & outdoor boundaries.  We all do our best to stay safe, but accidents can happen.  Students & parents must be ready for anything!  Also: please be ready for your child to hop in the car muddy, wet, and tired!
