We really encourage parents to clear the calendar this weekend for their sixth grader so that he/she can enjoy the entire experience. However, if that is not possible, your sixth grader can come to any part of the weekend he/she can. It will be the parent's responsibility to transport their sixth grader to/from Woodlands Camp if there are conflicts in schedule that prohibit your sixth grader from staying the entire weekend. If you wish to bring your child up later or pick him/her up early, directions can be obtained from Sarah or Joy. There are no cost deductions for a student who only comes part of the weekend.
