Missouri Pre-Teen Camp Welcome Video for Parents & Campers

Howdy, to our Parents and Campers for 2012! We’re looking forward to another great year in Missouri, and we’re glad that you’re going to be a part of it.  As of today, it is exactly one month away!

Let me use this post (1) to remind you to complete all the items necessary for final approval–including mailing in your signed application and your transportation and medical forms, as well as any outstanding payments–and (2) to encourage you to watch the “Welcome” video below!  This brief video is not intended as a substitute for your Acceptance Packet, which should be read very carefully, but we hope it is a help to you as you prepare.

Check out the video, take care of those final requirements, and we’ll see you there! [Some pre-arrival training videos for staff will be posted in later post, so stay tuned…]
