Twilight Camp Planning
Everything we use to plan and run camp is stored in Microsoft OneDrive.  You'll need a personal Microsoft Account to edit the files on OneDrive if you don't have one.  Let Nick know the email address associated with your account and he'll grant you access.

Site Activity Planning
Please use the planning documents linked below to think through your activities. Focus on any prep you need to do before camp (example: cutting wooden dowels for the air cars in 2018), any supplies you need to order (example: 750 feet of paracord in 2017), what needs to happen to set up each day (example: starting a fire for pie irons in 2018), any reset between groups (example: filling water balloons in 2018) and any end-of-day/end-of-camp tear down (example: releasing butterflies in 2016).  Add a short "script" with steps on how to run the activity. 

These don't need to be perfect, there's no inspection, no auditing!  We want to avoid paying overnight shipping on supplies in July or panicking in camp cause a craft needs two hours to dry, or something like that!
