How to help your child prepare for a visit to Trees For Tomorrow
Student Forms: Review the entire Student Packet with your child. This packet includes an informational newsletter with a packing list, a Student Behavior Contract, and a Medical Release Form.
Cell phones: Trees For Tomorrow is cell phone free during all lesson times. The only exception is if students were given permission by their school or teachers to use their cell phones for cameras. Be sure to check with your school if there are additional cell phone policies during their stay.
Gift shop: Trees For Tomorrow has a gift shop on campus with snacks, souvenirs, and nature books. Our gift shop is usually open after evening lessons are over. We accept cash, checks or credit card for any purchase. We do not have an ATM on campus so be sure your child is prepared.
Dietary restrictions: If your child has any dietary restrictions or food allergies, please share that information with the coordinating teacher as soon as possible. They will then follow up with the Trees For Tomorrow hospitality staff to ensure we are prepared. For gluten-free, dairy-free and vegan dietary restrictions, please contact our Hospitality Manager, Mandy, so we ensure we are able to accommodate your child’s needs. Mandy@TreesForTomorrow.com or 715-479-6456, ext. 229.
Medications: If your child will be taking any prescription or non-prescription medications, all school regulations will apply. It is Trees For Tomorrow policy that unless you are attending with your child, adult chaperones will collect all prescription and non-prescription medications from all students. Students may keep in their possession inhalers, epi-pens, insulin, birth control (if already self-administering) and other substances for the treatment of medical emergencies. Medications will be locked in a chaperone dorm room or in the possession of an adult chaperone at all times. Trees For Tomorrow is required to follow Wisconsin Department of Health Services Chapter 175.
Questions: If you have any questions, be sure to ask the coordinating teacher with your school!
