This email was sent out to all registered campers:
In less than a week, we’ll be starting EcoJustice Camp — yay! Below is some information about the camp for you and your child/ren.
(1) Schedule for the week:
Monday: at UUCPA, 505 E. Charleston Rd., Palo Alto, all day
Tuesday: all-day field trip to Pescadero State Beach
Wednesday: afternoon field trip to Foothills Park in Palo Alto
Wednesday night: overnight in Foothills Park
Thursday: all day field trip to Purisima Creek Redwoods in Half Moon Bay (plenty of shade, nice and relaxed)
Friday: morning field trip to 4H barn in Cupertino to see goats and pigs (campers may opt out), rest of the day on site
(2) What to bring — this is an outdoor-oriented camp, so:
Campers should be sure to bring a backpack or bag with —
change of clothes
a towel (esp. important for beach field trip and redwoods field trip)
special snack food if allergies
sweatshirt or something warm (just in case)
Campers should be sure to wear —
clothes that can get dirty
a hat (for sun)
closed-toe shoes (no Crocs or flip-flops, please)
We were able to get a campsite at Foothills Park, right in Palo Alto. Since Foothills Park is convenient (in case a camper wants to be picked up early), we decided to have all campers camp at Foothills Park, including the younger ones.
(4) Ecojustice Camp Outdoors Book
We have mailed a book to your camper — the Ecojustice Camp Outdoors Book, a fun introduction to the kinds of things we’ll be doing at camp. It should arrive via U.S. mails on Saturday or before. ***If your book does not come in time, don’t worry! We have extra copies, and you can either drop by on Sunday (when I’ll be doing camp set-up), or get a copy on the first day of camp.
