Shepherd Camping Trip – Sat, May 18 – NEED YOUR CONFIRMATIONS
Our first annual Shepherd Elementary camping trip is fast approaching. Unfortunately, all of the sites are booked already, but if you were one of the lucky ones who signed up early, we need to know you’re going.
Please visit the Google spreadsheet found via the following link and provide your name and camp location. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1jk0ZHWquP31JUYmN7duxjLG6PumJeFIh4sptYW5qpWE/edit?usp=sharing
Each campsite can fit two cars and up to six guests, so if you want to go but forgot to book a site, please message me and we will try to pair you with another family that has booked a site.
Camp set up can begin at 3:00 PM on the 18th. Derek and Michelle Musgrove will have games for the kids between 3 and dinner, and they’ll host Smore’s at 7:00 PM. You’re on the hook for your own dinner and breakfast. If you’re new to camping, our recommendation is to keep it simple.
On the 19th, we’ll meet up at 9:30 AM for a hike before folks head home.
