It is okay to bring stuff to do during downtime (cards, monopoly, homework, etc.) but keep in mind the reason that you are there. Students will need money for both lunch and dinner. A concession area is available on site for lunch. We usually try to take students away for dinner that evening. $20.00 should be sufficient for both meals. Final postings have been made around 9:00 PM the last couple of years. That would tentatively get us back home around 11:00 PM.
