If you prefer to walk your child to the check-in doors, you can park in the main lot and walk back to the check-in area.
PICK-UP: this is also a drive-thru pick-up service. The counselors will approach your vehicle to confirm who you are picking up. If someone other that your designated pick-up person is requesting your camper, we require written permission. The same requirement is needed for campers going home with their friends.
WALKERS: If your camper is walking or biking to or from camp, please send a note with permission. Kindly advise if this is permission for the entire summer. You may also email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
CAMP TRIPS: camp trips are scheduled and are optional for an addtional fee. Stay-back camp is not being offered in 2023, so if your camper is not attending the scheduled trip they will need to stay home that day.
