Parent Sessions Class Closed

There is no cost for attending parent sessions. Although all parents and family are welcome to come to these sessions without registering, it would help us to have enough materials ready if we knew how many people might attend a parent session. You do not need to come to each session. Choose the ones that interest you. Parent talks will be held in 307 Ginger Hall and run from 9:15 a.m. to 10:15 a.m. Parents are welcome to stay after the talk and just visit with each other while they wait for the end of camp.
