WINDY GAP- OCTOBER 2021

OVERVIEW
Every year, for over 20 years, SF students in 7th - 12th Grades have traveled to Weaverville, NC, to experience WINDY GAP. This tradition is a favorite among students, faculty, administration, and staff. Students build deeper relationships with their classmates and teachers in the picturesque mountains of North Carolina. Windy Gap is a time of fun and laughter, of growing in Christ and growing closer to friends, a time of starting new friendships and strengthening old ones.

IMPORTANT DETAILS
MEDICINES | All medicines (both prescription and OTC) must be administered by our school nurses for the duration of the Windy Gap trip. Prescription medication must be labeled in an original bottle with the student’s name and appropriate dosage. Please bring only what is necessary for the trip. Students may NOT keep medicine with their belongings.
Please complete the Medication Form if your child will be taking medication.
All medicine must be brought to Angie Belew at the front office by Monday, October 4th

CONSENT FORMS | All students (and parent volunteers) must submit the Windy Gap Consent Form prior to our departure.

Consent Forms must be completed by Monday, October 4th

CELL PHONES | The location of Windy Gap makes cell phone reception almost non-existent. If you send your child with a cell phone, please note that they will probably not be able to find a signal. If you need to contact your child while we are at the camp, please call 828-645-7187. This number will reach the camp directly and someone will contact one of our staff.

WEATHER | The days can get extremely warm and the nights can get extremely cool. Please make sure your student packs clothing that can be layered.

PERSONAL SNACKS | Personal Snacks are NOT ALLOWED in the cabins as they invite unwelcome guests. Students will have opportunities to get snacks during free time and snacks will be provided each night prior to bedtime.

ELECTRONICS | If students bring electronic devices (iPads, iPhones, smart phones.), they must assume all responsibility for those devices. Cabins will be unlocked during the day, so it will be impossible to secure them.
