Hiking:  Please bring for each person, at a minimum:
- water
- snack
- sunscreen/hat
If your son has covered Hiking Essentials with his den, he can bring those items as well.
The hike will start around 3:30 pm.  Meet at the picnic bench area.

Overnight Camping: The campsite is an uphill walk from the parking lot.  If you have a wagon, you may want to bring it to reduce your number of trips to the car.  If camping overnight, please bring:
- tent
- air mattress or sleeping pad
- sleeping bag
- flashlight  
- toothbrush
- change of clothes (optional)
- pillow (optional)
There is no full bathroom facility, only porta-potties, but there is water to brush teeth and wash hands.  A simple breakfast will be provided early the next morning.  You can leave earlier if you wish, but we will be all packed up and out of the camp site by 10 am.

Dinner:  We will start dinner around 5:30 pm, so please make sure your dishes are set up on the picnic tables by then.

**DO NOT FORGET TO BRING YOUR OWN DISHES (plate, cup, fork, spoon, bowl, etc)**

For each dish:
- Label your item. Particularly note if there is meat, eggs, dairy, nuts or gluten in your recipe
- Provide a serving spoon for your dish, if required

Campfire Program:  We will have songs, skits, ceremonies and s'mores.  The program should be done by 9:30.  Make sure you have a flashlight and a jacket.  We need more propane/electric lanterns for the campfire skits.  Please sign up to bring one, if you can.
