Middle School Camp Information
This middle school yearbook workshop offers you and your staff a great opportunity to get a head start on next year’s book. It is perfect for new and returning advisers, to either learn the basics or to see the latest trends in design, while their staffs have fun and learn everything they need to know about yearbooks. We discuss every aspect of publication creation and provide your staff with time to put your plan into action with the help of our highly-trained staff that will be there to help along the way. This is your opportunity to get prepared so that you can hit the ground running in the fall. We will work hard, create projects, and compete but we will also have fun along the way!

Medical Release Forms
Each student will need to turn in a medical release form at check-in on the day of camp. Advisers can download and pass out forms beforehand and submit all together at check-in or they can make it the responsibility of each camper. Campers will not be allowed to participate without a medical release form on file.
Medical release forms can be downloaded here.
Detailed camp packets
Each adviser, chaperone and camper will receive a detailed camp packet via email two weeks before camp. The packet will include check-in information, schedules, packing lists, maps and directions, and other tips to get the most out of your time at camp.
