  • Come prepared for FUN DAY! I want to see you at camp wearing your craziest outfits and ready to warm-up to the legendary JUMP-N-WAVE! Day 3 is considered Fun-Day but we all know that every day is fun! – Ben
  • You’ll be doing a lot of skills and it’s summertime so try to bring things that will cool your body off such as: spray fan, cooling towel, and waterbottle. – Gillian
