Check-In / Check-Out Process
Check-In

Check-in will look different this summer to help us minimize the chance of exposure and keep everyone as safe as possible. We will utilize a contact free drive-thru drop off system.

Drop off times are from 7:00a-8:15a. Campers will not be accepted into camp after these times.

Arrival (please stay in your car):

Staff members will direct you to a check-in station as you drive into camp.

  • At each station a staff member equipped with proper personal protection equipment and will provide a temperature check, health check, and verify camper paperwork.
  • Anyone with a temperature of 100.4-degree F or higher will be double checked after waiting two minutes. If it is still 4 degrees or higher you will be asked to return home, and the Camp Director will help determine the next steps.
  • Once cleared campers will be directed to camp where they will stop at a to sanitize their hands prior to entering camp.
  • We ask that you limit your child’s belongings at camp this summer. Ideally a drawstring backpack or something similar in size is preferred. All items brought to camp must fit inside their backpack.

On the first day of camp, parents will receive their pick up cards. These cards are to be displayed in your car’s dash upon camper pick up.

Check-Out

Our check-out process will be curb-side pickup. This will be in the same location as camper drop-off. Each station will have staff members with appropriate PPE.

Parents may pick up campers between 4:00p-6:00p. Due to our ratios and increased safety measures we ask that you do not attempt to pick up children earlier than this time. We must ensure that we have the proper staff ratios met in order to pull a staff member out of camp to conduct the checkout process safely. 

Dismissal (please stay in your car):

  • Parents will pull up into the pick-up line. Remember to have your pick up cards displayed on your dash or window.
  • Staff members will call for your camper via walkie talkie
  • The staff member will then check your photo ID through the window of your vehicle. Please stay in your car.
  • Once verified, we will bring your camper to your car and a staff member will sign them out, noting your name on the sign out sheet.

Per Child Care Regulations, each camp’s sign out process may vary slightly. If you are required to sign your camper out with the staff member the equipment will be sanitized (pen and clipboard) after each signature.
