3. At 4:00, campers will proceed to their assigned room and select an open bunk in the room. Please be nice. Do not move anyone else’s property.

4. A table in each room will contain an envelop with your camper’s name. This envelop will contain a wristband, camper information, and a name tag. Please check that the camper information in the envelop is correct and complete. After you have finished setting up the camper’s bed, take the completed form to RCC staff located at the information table. All outstanding payments can be paid at this time.

5. Campers will proceed to their assigned area for activities while other families settle in their rooms.
