Driving

 

Field camp needs responsible student drivers. Ideally, everyone pitches in. We ask that you consider submitting the following documentation so that 

we have a large pool of drivers to share the responsibility.
Some students enjoy driving more than others.  These students should mark driving as their top priority on the registration form. 

 

If you have a good driving record, and are going to drive for the camp, all approved drivers
are required to agree to the following camp rules:



(1) you must be available as the designated driver for at least one town night,    you must be respectful of others


(2) you must share in driving for the entire camp - some exceptions handled on a case by case basis.


So, to get the process started in identifying drivers, please print out this form and and fill it in.

, make a high resolution photocopy of your drivers license.
