Students on Teams 2 & 3 have a drop off time at RAMS for 8:30 am on Tuesday, April 23. Please be sure to have all of your child’s luggage labeled and walk them into the auditorium for check-in. The buses will depart for Charlton by 9:15 am. Students on Team 2 & 3 will arrive back at RAMS on Friday, April 26 around 12:45 pm. You may pick your child up at that time at the front of the building.


Students on Team 1 have a drop off time at RAMS for 9:15 am on Tuesday, April 23. Please be sure to have all of your child’s luggage labeled and walk them into the auditorium for check-in. The buses will depart for Charlton by 10:00 am. Students on Team 1 will arrive back at RAMS on Friday, April 26 around 1:15 pm. You may pick your child up at that time at the front of the building.


All medication needs to be checked in with our nursing staff in the auditorium. Please do not pack any medication in your child’s luggage. Additionally, please make sure that your child does not bring an electronic device. If a child has an electronic device with them, a RAMS staff member will hold onto it for the week.


Thank you to all of our parent volunteers, and our staff who have made this week possible. We look forward to a fun filled week of adventure with our students!!
