EXTRA NOTES FOR YOU.

Retail

Just a reminder there will be no free Norjam T shirt. Orders will close on Sunday 3rd June.

Necker’s

Everyone will receive a subcamp Necker, this must be worn at all times. Please remember to bring a sharpie and write your contingent number and young person initials on the label before you fold/roll them. Really helps when they end up in the lost property box.
