*Please rank your top 5 choices with 1 being the activity you want to do the most and 5 being the activity you would be ok not doing this year.

We will then do our best to get everyone into the activities they want to do the most. Please understand that we are not always able to get everyone their top 3 picks. Monday morning at Camp, you will find out what Journeys you will be at for the week.

Ranking choices like this is something we had done at Camp on Monday night before. Thank you for your help and completing this before you arrive.
