WHEN: Departing Monday, August 31st, 2 nights, returning Wednesday, September 2nd
WHERE: Camp Casey, Whidbey Island: www.spu.edu/casey
RETREAT DESCRIPTION: The goal of the retreat is to promote bonding of team members in a scenic and relaxing location. Retreat activities include running every day, instruction on proper training techniques and nutrition, and captain-led fun activities such as games, crafts, and campfire activities. Freshmen and other girls new to the team are especially encouraged to attend. The retreat is for girls only and is chaperoned at all times by Coach Donna and several parent volunteers.
TIME: On Monday, the ferry departs Mukilteo at 1:30pm so girls should arrive no later than 1:00pm to purchase a ticket (or use your Orca card) and walk on. We’ve reserved a bus to transport the girls from the Clinton ferry landing to Camp Casey. On Wednesday, the bus will return the girls to the Clinton ferry landing for an 11:00am crossing. Please plan on picking up your daughter at 11:30am on Wednesday at the Mukilteo ferry landing.
TRANSPORTATION TO/FROM MUKILTEO: Due to district rules and policies, we are not allowed to organize or arrange carpools for students. Athletes are encouraged to arrange their own rides with teammates. One of the senior team captains has volunteered to take public bus transportation between Seattle and Mukilteo. Any athlete who wishes to join her should contact one of the team captains asap.
RSVP REQUIRED: If you plan to attend, please email the Parent Communications Volunteer no later than Friday, 8/21.
