Medications – Must be turned in to our nurses at check-in along with the Medication/Allergy form (below).  All medications must be in their original containers.  Please send only what your student will need at camp.

Housing – Students will be staying in hotel rooms and are housed with their small groups.  We cannot accommodate specific roommate requests.  Pillows and blankets are provided by the hotel, and no sleeping bags are necessary.

Small Groups – Adult small group leaders are with their groups 24/7.  Your student will never be alone or without adult supervision.

Meals – All meals are served buffet style with excellent choices that meet most dietary requirements.  If your student has a severe allergy, please let us know in the registration form.  Your student is also welcome to pack allergy-safe snacks.

T-shirts – Breakaway t-shirts are available for purchase when you sign up your student for Breakaway for an additional $10.  These t-shirt fees help us send our Leaders to camp for free!  Your student will get their shirt when they check in for camp on Friday, October 26, but you must pre-purchase the t-shirt.
