SAMPLE: ITINERARY / PACKING LIST EMAIL

Afternoon Campers!

 

This email will hopefully help you get a better idea of what the weekend will look like, what to bring and what to expect so save it and prepare any questions you might have  - so read up, email us with questions you may still have: LoriBKIPaintball@Gmail.com

 

So some questions we have been asked already include:

 

Can parents come and stay with their children? While we would LOVE to have our parents on site this year, restrictions do prohibit us from allowing them. If there are circumstances that we should discuss, please mention them during your phone call with Anthony and we can work out whatever is best and necessary.  You can stay nearby and we would suggest that you look into this local Campground: Minutemen Campground located in Maynard Ma or the closet hotel the Best Western Concord Ma

 

There are other area hotels in Concord, Waltham or Marlborough Ma but all will require your own means of transportation.

 

The Boston Excursion: Is most likely not possible due to state ordinances pertaining to camps. We will update. 

 

Laundry: We have a list of suggested items to pack to make laundry as little an issue as possible - we will have lines that you may use to wash and hang items - and we are exploring possible laundry service at the 2 day mark. We will update that info as well.

 

Showers: We will have a multi-shower unit on site - please pack essential toiletries! We will NOT have anything other than hand washing soap available to you this year due to efforts to decrease shared commodities. There is a Rite Aid and a Stop and Shop just 5 minarets from the field should you need anything.  

 

Airport Shuttles: We will run them until 3PM on Wednesday July 22nd so that we make get to the venue by dinner. Please plan to arrive at Logan Airport before 3PM in order to make the shuttle to the field. If you are coming in the Tuesday Night before - there are hotels in Chelsea Ma that are all located within a mile of the Boston Paintball Indoor Field and we will arrange for pickup on Wednesday.

 

Homewood Suites by Hilton - Chelsea Ma

Doubletree by Hilton - Chelsea Ma

Residence Inn - Chelsea Ma

EnVision - Everett Ma

 

Return Flights:

Please book them as late as possible or just after 4:00PM. We will be running a tournament on Sunday Morning that we plan on wrapping up by 1:00PM - showers and packing from 1-3pm then heading to the airport.

This is a very rough itinerary - we are evaluating the sign up sheets and will be designing a detailed curriculum for each heat.

 

What to pack:

 

Casual clothing for travel and baseball game

a light jacket or sweatshirt

One jersey (you will be receiving 2 upon check in)

2 sets of pants if you have them

Under garments for each day (the stuff you will sweat through)

a non-fitted sheet

A sleeping Bag

A Pillow and Pillowcase

We will supply a fitted sheet for the bed you will be sleeping on - it will either be an air mattress (high off the ground and San Diego Dynasty Tested and Approved) or a spring / mattress cot style. This depends essentially on how tall a player is :)

There are real bathrooms on site

Pack sunscreen / lotion

Bug Spray

Medications / Epipens etc

YOUR GEAR

WE WILL PROVIDE PODS FOR USE DURING THE CAMP

 

We will have plenty of power available to charge phones / computers;

 

All of our fields have turf which means mud is only a small issue (if at all) in the common areas. While we won't play in downpours or lightening - we will play in the rain so bring visors and lids.

 

Please don't hesitate to email us back with any questions you may still have! LoriBKIPaintball@Gmail.com
