Evan’s Lake Info

Hi all,

We are meeting at the school on Monday, Oct 22nd at 7:00am. We will return to the school on Wed, Oct 24th at 1:30pm and you will be dismissed at that time.

We recommend that each student brings one bag and their sleeping gear. On Monday, be sure to eat breakfast and bring a snack for the bus ride (~1.5 hours). Lunch will be provided when we arrive. We also recommend that you are wearing comfortable footwear appropriate for hiking as a shuttle will be meeting us there to grab our gear, but we will be hiking into camp. Please be sure to label your garments!

If you have any prescribed medications, it needs to be labelled in a zip-lock bag with instructions to be kept by the teaching staff.
