parent/guardian. – Youth participants must have an adult in the area who is NOT
participating in Marji Camp. The adult must be reachable by phone at all times and be prepared to pick up their youth participant at any time during the session. – Youth participants will change locations immediately following lunch
both days. Parent/Guardian must provide transportation. More
specifics will be provided at check-in. – Youth participants must be picked up by a parent/guardian at 4PM
from their assigned location each day. ● Breakfast – If your youth wants breakfast: Bring them to Basecamp between
7:30 and 8:30, then transport them to their assigned trailhead by 9. Breakfast is highly recommended, however if it’s not consumed at Basecamp just head right to the assigned trailhead by 9. Lunch will be provided at 12 (trailside). ● Dinner, Campfire Talks and Night Rides – Youth participants can stick around
for the evening but are the responsibility of their parent/guardian at all
times beginning at 4PM. Also, note that the evening events are adult-driven;
there will be beer and adult language. ● Saturday | 4pm Pick up at the same location you dropped off. Youth are the
responsibility of their parent/guardian after 4pm. ● Initially, youth will be grouped by age. As the weekend progresses, we may
move youth around, as necessary. ● Camp will be challenging. It might be one of the most difficult things they’ve
done. Ensure your youth is physically, socially and emotionally prepared for
the challenge. We don’t want to set youth up for failure. RIDE/RUN LOCATIONS You’ll be assigned to ride/run with your group at trailheads around the NTN and
RAMBA trails. Riders and runners are responsible for getting themselves to and
from ride and run locations. The distance between Basecamp and trailheads is
anywhere between 0 and 20 miles. Consider this if you’re carpooling to Marji Camp. – It’s highly likely you’ll be in different groups with different locations than the
person you carpooled to Marji Camp with. You can probably find a ride from someone else in your
group but YOU need to figure that out. Group assignments will be shared at
check-in. FOOD AND BEVERAGE We will provide breakfast, lunch, dinner and beer on Friday and Saturday. If you
have special dietary requirements, we recommend that you self-support. BREAKFAST Breakfast provided by 231 West and Coffee provided by Velodrome Coffee Co. Will
be available for pickup at Basecamp at 7:30AM. Menu TBD. LUNCH Provided by 231 West, will be delivered to your ride/run locations. Menu TBD.
