Please do not arrive early. Gates will be closed and staff will be preparing for your child’s arrival. There are no early admissions.
Our #1 priority at camp is the health and safety of our campers and leaders, so the check-in process is very important to ensure that all registration information is correct. Please allow 45-60 minutes to escort your camper through the stations.
When you arrive, you will enter through the main camp gate and will be directed to the Registrar to double-check registration forms and fees, then on to pick up your t-shirt. Next is a health check and a lice check for the camper. Note: This process is quicker and more effective if the camper’s hair is not braided. We may have to unbraid or otherwise alter their hairstyle if we cannot thoroughly inspect their scalp.
Our health center staff checks in with every camper for a health screening, confirmation of healthcare information, and cataloging of medications. Every camper and their adult chaperone is welcome to speak directly with our healthcare staff. Whether you have a hundred questions or zero, you will receive as much time with the healthcare staff as needed to ensure your child’s safety. This step often takes the longest of all our check-in stations, and we appreciate your patience. For the quickest health check, have ALL of your camper’s medications in a gallon-size ziploc bag in easy reach.
Once check-in is complete, all information has been verified, and your child has completed the health screening, it’s time to settle in! You can assist your camper in loading their luggage onto a hayride or directly into their cottage. Say your goodbyes and drive home safely!
