PACK A BAG SUPPER for Wednesday, June 26. Rehearsal begins at 2:00 PM at FVL. All other meals will be provided by LVW.
We will be staying in camp host homes for Wednesday night. On Thursday, we will be staying overnight at FVL, so all LVW members and staff are to bring overnight gear for that night.
Remember, you should pack for FIVE days, but try to utilize small suitcases and duffel bags. We are traveling with school buses for this trip (Friday - Sunday), so space will be limited.
Rehearsal camp will take place on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday morning. We will be leaving Friday afternoon for Fort Atkinson and the remainder of our weekend, which will culminate at the Oregon Show on Sunday night.
