Welcome to Trailblazer Camp our 6th, 7th and 8th grade program!
We are so excited to begin our adventures next week. Here is some important that is specific to the Trailblazer Program.
Each week the Trailblazers go on 3 field trips. On Mondays the Camp Blog will be updated with all the information you need to know about each trip. This will include what your camper should pack or bring, information about any waivers that need to be signed, and any notes about changes in dismissal times. Right now you can see information about the trips and estimated dismissal times by visiting the Trailblazer’s Program Page
However even with all our best planning and preparation, we are often hit with curveballs during our travels, whether it be an unexpected traffic jam or a malfunctioning gps, sometimes we can get off schedule. In order to keep you in the loop with what is going on we will be using an application called “Remind”. Remind let’s us send updates to all the followers of a group so you can stay informed. You can decide how you want to use Remind. You can sign up via email at this link: https://www.remind.com/join/lsc17 . You can download the app on your smartphone, or you can simply just sign up via text message, and you will receive the alerts via text. Check out the flyer below for more information and click on it to download a pdf copy.
Do note that although Option B above says if you don’t have a smartphone you can use that option with a smartphone. It means you will receive updates as a regular text message and not through their app, which you might prefer.
In addition to updates on our travel times, we will also use the app to share quick pictures, fun moments, and links to our full blog posts with information about upcoming weeks and recaps of previous weeks.
You can sign up just before the weeks your camper is attending and if you text STOP to the number alerts will stop coming. You can retext @lsc17 at any time to re-enroll so for example if your camper is coming for Weeks 2 and 4 you can sign up before week 2, then STOP getting the messages, and then re-enroll before week 4 so you are not bothered with week 3 updates.
If you have any questions feel free to stop in to the Trailblazer’s Lounge any morning and we can help you out! And if you prefer not to use Remind you can simply call our office to find out if any trip might be running late. The office number is 781-259-0784. We also will inform campers of any changes so they can contact you via their devices as well. Lastly you can contact our director Joe Colombo via email at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or concerns.
