Exciting news!  We are planning for 7th Grade Camp to be a "normal" full week experience with overnights.  All of the details about dates, transportation, packing, etc. can be found below.  If you have specific questions regarding your students 7th Grade camp experience, please email Marianne Mutschler at mccamp@dexterschools.org.

**We understand that being in a global pandemic will mean we have to be flexible with our plans.  If it is not determined to be safe to take the students overnight, we will change to a day only option.  It is much easier to plan for the full week and scale back, if necessary, as opposed to plan for a day only option and change to overnight.  The final decision will be made in August.**

Date(s): September 12-16- Students attend camp

Monday September 12: Students will arrive to Mill Creek at the normal arrival time and will wait for the buses to come and pick them up for camp.  Students should not plan on riding the bus to school due to their luggage.

Friday September 16- Students will be back at Mill Creek at approximately 2pm.  Parents/guardians should plan on picking up their student and their luggage when they arrive.  You can arrange for another parent to pick your student up if necessary.

Medication at Camp
 
Students should NOT pack medication unless it is rescue medication (ie. inhaler, epipen, diabetic supplies, etc.).  Once students arrive at camp, all medication must be handed to a Mill Creek staff member.  For students who require daily medication, there will be an opportunity to come to Mill Creek, meet with Ms. Mutschler, and pack your students meds for the week.  As needed medication does not need to be packed, as the Mill Creek staff will have a first aid kit with OTC medication if the need should arise.  All OTC medication that we will have on hand are listed on the student health form.  You will sign, giving permission for Mill Creek staff to give your student select medication.
