This blog entry contains information about parent meetings to gain an understanding of the 2013 summer Devil Pup camp experience. This summer's camp is from Thursday, 18 July, through Saturday, 27 July at Marine Corps Base, Camp Pendleton on the California coast, midway between San Diego and Los Angeles. We provide transportation to the camp, and respectfully request that the parents attend the graduation ceremony, as it is a peak experience in the young lives of their children. Parents are responsible for transportation home from Camp Pendleton.
Before your permission can be sought, you might wish background information on the program. For that reason, we have set aside two evenings next week at which we can meet and enlighten parents on the value of this program in the development of their youngster. Although you may not have heard of the program, it has graduated over 50,000 young people over the years of its existence, after an intensive ten-day course whose motto is "Growth through challenge."
We have set aside these dates:
Tuesday, 23 April
Wednesday, 24 April
Please choose one of the dates that is most convenient for your family. Both evening meetings begin at 6:00 p.m. in Conference Rooms A and B in the basement of the Washington County Library, 88 W. 100 So., St. George. The meetings convene at 6:00 p.m. and we must surrender the room at library closing - 7:30 p.m. You might want a notebook and pen for notes.
My staff and I (all volunteers) are looking forward to meeting each of you.
