    Valley Mill Camp heads out for a Hike and River Safety trip. The group will leave camp around 10:00 a.m. and arrive near the Billy Goat Trail between 10:30 and 11:00 a.m. The campers are then given a pre-trip safety talk, and then begin the Hike and River Safety Activities. Campers return to camp around 3:15 p.m.

    What to Bring:

    Out on the river and while hiking, campers will be exposed to a lot of sun. Make sure to pack sunscreen, hat, sunglasses and anything else that may help protect form the sun. Campers will also get very wet and must wear swimsuit and clothes that are able to go in the river. Please pack lunches that will not spoil since lunches are not refrigerated. Add a soft cold pack to the lunch to keep it cool. Pack lunches in a ziplock bag or otherwise waterproof/water resistant bag. Items good to have on the trip are water bottle, water shoes that will not fall off (required), swimsuit, towel, bag lunch and sun protection.
