Upon arrival at the camp grounds the Eco-Kids were assigned to both their cabins and their teams for the week. The Tapirs, Toucans, Jaguars, and last but not least, the Howler Monkeys. Then they were all assembled in the dining area to design their team flags with paint and markers. Most of the campers were ecstatic when they learned that their hand and footprints were eligible to go on their team flags!

The procedure to donate to this cause entails substituting one pound of luggage for one pound of school supplies or by sending school supplies to Chaa Creek via mail. Chaa Creek would gather school supplies, pack them off by pound and then distribute to the schools and students who need it most.
