Driving

 

Field camp needs responsible student drivers. Ideally, everyone pitches in.
Some students enjoy driving more than others.  These students should mark
driving as their top priority on the registration form. 

 

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

         you must be available as the designated driver for at least one town night

         you must be respectful of others

         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. 
NEXT
, make a high resolution photocopy of your drivers license. 

LAST, mail your driver's license and the filled-out form to:
