Most of the children arrive to camp via personal or car pool transportation. We have instituted
the following procedures for drop-off and pick-up, to ensure the safety of our children.
Drop-off time will be between 9:00 AM - 9:15 AM. Drive up slowly to the front of the building
and come to a complete stop. Staff members will be on hand to escort your child/ren into the
building to their proper meeting place.
Please note, that this is not the time to engage the staff in the discussion. If you need to
discuss something with the head of staff, then, after you drop off your child/ren, you will be
directed to a special parking area.
After 9:15 AM, counselors will not be waiting outside to escort your child/ren. For late arrivals please park your car and then bring your child/ren to the main office.
Pick-up time is 3:00 PM - 3:25 PM. Drive slowly into the parking lot, and pull up to the door.
Please inform your division head counselor in advance if you need to pick up your child/ren early. Authorization must be provided in writing if someone other than a parent is doing the pick-up. When you arrive at camp for early pick-up, please report to the office first. A staff member will bring your child to the office.
