The next and final group meeting will be in July, probably the week of the 11th when everyone is back from camp, exact date to-be-determined.  At that meeting we'll go over final preparations; things like: when we're leaving and what to do (we'll all meet at the cabin and leave via our bus, bring your meds, emergency contacts, some of the adult leaders will need to have phone service, go over packing again, etc.

People going should be gathering the items on the packing list if they don't already have them, making sure they are doing some sort of exercise, should begin hydrating about 2 weeks before the trip, should make sure their paperwork is all in.
