Transportation Week: August 7-11
Transportation Week takes place from August 7-11. Campers will take daily field trips and travel across the metropolitan Washington, DC area to visit planes, trains, and vehicles and record what they learn about transportation. As campers visit these destinations, they will gather images and video to assemble a collaborative film that will be completed by the end of the week and shared online. There will also be cool-down time at water parks along the way.
Transportation Week Logistics
Camp hours of operation will stay the same: 8:00 AM–6:00 PM. Buses will depart promptly at 9:00 AM and return to the Primary School no later than 4:45 PM (return to WIS is contingent on weather and traffic). At morning arrival time, children will be checked in and grouped by language track and age, as in previous camp weeks. Please be prompt; due to safety concerns, any children who are not present at the Primary School at 9:00 AM will not be permitted to join the group or board the bus. Additionally, it is not possible for parents or guardians to pick campers up at any given destination point; the same number of campers who board the bus in the morning will return to WIS at the end of the day. All registrations for Transportation Week must be completed by Thursday, August 3 to ensure we have the proper amount of lunches, buses, and staff present.
Meals: A boxed lunch will be available this week; it will consist of sandwiches Monday-Thursday and pizza on Friday. All lunch registrations for the last week of camp must be submitted by close of business on August 3, 2017.
