Friday departure details at the bottom of this message.

 What do I need to bring?
    - Everything you would bring for a normal campout, plus....
    - Sunscreen
    - Shoes for the water that have a strap across the heel.  MANDATORY to wear at the riverpark.  Crocs with strap = ok.  Flip flops = no way
    - No barefeet allowed in park.
    - Two towels...one for drying off and one for sitting on in the car when driving back from the riverpark.  
       Please don't leave a wet mess in your driver's car  :)
    - Change of clothes and shoes for Sat afternoon.  Please change into dry clothes/footwear before you get into the car to drive back to our campsite.
    - Avoid having to put on a ton of sunscreen by wearing an SPF water shirt.
    - Extra money if you want to buy something at the riverpark.  You have already paid for lunch and dinner.
    - Swimsuit with pockets and a baggie that will seal if you want to keep something dryish in your pocket.  Lockers I am told are free.
    - Class A uniform for travel to and from the campsite (Chickasaw National Recreation Area in Sulphur, OK)
    - Standard eating utensils and plates for breakfasts that will be cooked at camp and for cracker barrel on Friday night.  Water bottle.
