Operation Christmas Kickoff – Final Information

Preparing for Carowinds

Carowinds is going to be a blast! I think the students are going to have a lot of fun. I just wanted to cover a couple pieces of information:

  • First and Foremost: Dress warmly! It will be in the low 40s tomorrow night in Charlotte. Wear multiple layers. It’s better to shed a layer because you’re too warm than to freeze!
  • Pack lightly! Please only bring what you absolutely need. There is limited space for luggage on the bus.
  • You need cash for Carowinds.
  • There are pre-assigned rooms. These assignments have already been communicated with the hotel.
  • No students need to bring air mattresses. I’ve added enough hotel rooms for everyone to be in a bed!
  • The hotel will have other guests! When we get to the hotel, we have to settle in for the night.
  • Students should not leave their assigned rooms at any point in the night. If there is an emergency, notify Colton by calling him or Lauren.
  • No boys in girls’ rooms and no girls in boys’ rooms!
  • Breakfast will be in the hotel lobby. Breakfast is served starting at 6 AM. Please be considerate of other guests.
  • Students need to be on the bus, with their luggage, by 8:45 AM Saturday morning.

Please select your preferred chaperone group by noon on 12/17!
