Families may also drop off and pick up campers at camp. On arrival days, drop off occurs on our Athletic Field. Parents are not allowed any further onto camp grounds. We welcome parents to come into and tour camp on pick up the last day of First Session, July 16, and the last day of Second Session, August 6. Depending on safety protocols, families picking up on July 2 and July 30 may be able to enter camp for a short tour. We’ll keep you posted!
