Transportation

 

Car-pools:

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 9:15AM - 9:40 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 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 9:40 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 where you will need to

sign them in.

Pick-up time is 3:15PM - 3:30PM. Drive slowly into the parking lot, and pull up to the door.

 

Early Pick-up

Please inform the office in advance of your intention to pick-up your child/ren early. All

child/ren must be signed out before leaving campgrounds 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.

 

Communications with Camp
 

If you need to send a note to camp with special instructions or requests, please make sure to

call 917 - 913 -7759, or email mbmonsey@gmail.com

DO NOT rely solely on sending a note with your child. Many times children forget to mention

that they have a note with them.

 

We are always interested in hearing your comments and concerns regarding camp. Please do

not hesitate to call us, we are trying our best to do all that we can for your child/ren, but we

need your direct input, and welcome all suggestions.
