Additional Information

Camp is in session from 8 AM to 4 PM. Drop off will start at 8 AM. Students will check in with our education staff at the side entrance and parents will have to come inside to sign your child in. During the first hour of the day, students will wash their hands and are welcome to eat breakfast or play games with other students and staff. We ask that your child arrive before 9 AM, when our programming begins. The first part of the day is super important for your child as we will start getting to know one another, having mindful conversations, and preparing for our day. 

When it is time to pick up your child, you or your alternate pick up person (confirmed in our registration records) must come inside to sign out your child. Please pick up your child by 4 PM.
