First Day Logistics
The first day of program is structured differently than a normal day here at camp.
Please keep in mind that this is an extremely HECTIC time for our staff, it's better to drop-in later in the week or call ahead for an appointment to manage other camp office "business" such as payment or scheduling concerns.
Lower School Program
Please be sure your student comes to campus with the name tag they received in their packet that was mailed home.
Signing In: All new and returning campers will be asked to sign-in on our patio that overlooks the pool. Parents do not have to be present for the sign-in process. If a student is unable to be walked down by an adult, our counselors and program staff will help guide kiddos to where they need to be and will sign them in. All accompanying adults will be asked to wear "Guest/Visitor" badges for camper safety.
If signing in between 7:30am - 8:00am: All signed in Kinder and 1st Grade campers should proceed to the Butterfly Garden, which is behind Building C. All 2nd-5th graders should proceed to the "Big Toy".
If signing in between 8:00am - 8:30am: After signing in, lower school campers should go to their assigned classroom to meet their teacher. From these designated areas, families can meet classroom teachers and students will be organized in classroom groups.
Day One Sign-In Tables:
Nurse's Table: Our nurse, Amy Jo, will be stationed along with the other grade level tables on the patio. This is where you will drop off your child's FAAP (Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Plan) form along with any necessary medication. You are more than welcome to come by and say hello to our nurse and ask any questions you may have!
Transportation Table: Our bus supervisor, Angie Huaman, will also be ready and available for any questions pertaining to bus transportation, dismissal, etc. Though ready and available, it is better to drop-in later in the week or call ahead for an appointment to manage camp business as this is a very hectic time for our staff.
Day One Transportation:
We are aware that many families would like to transport their camper to and from campus on the first day. If you are registered to use the bus and will not be riding it on the first day please let us know using the Transportation/Dismissal Change Form for our accounting purposes.
Please park in Lot B which is on the opposite and above the main gatehouse on Lincoln Ave. There is no parking at any point below the stoplight in front of Head-Royce school.
Please Note: Lower school campers will be swimming on day one.
Middle School Program - First Day of Each Session
Day One: Arrival: Upon arrival, there will be two sign-in tables located at the bottom of the main staircase. All campers must sign-in and parents will be asked to wear “guest/visitor” badges for camper safety. Please keep in mind that this is an extremely HECTIC time for our staff, it's better to drop-in later in the week or call ahead for an appointment to manage other camp office "business" such as payment or scheduling concerns.
After signing in at the Middle School/Upper School table, please proceed to the Upper School Library for a short check-in meeting at 8:30 a.m.. We will have counselors pointing families in the right direction! Students will be led to their classrooms by teachers from this gathering. Due to space constraints, we are unable to invite parents to join us. After drop-off, we invite you to join us for pastries and coffee outside the cafe.
Day 1: Enrichment Schedules: Students will receive their enrichment schedules from their morning academic teacher. Unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate changes to student enrichment schedules.
Day One Transportation:
We are aware that many families would like to transport their camper to and from campus on the first day. If you are registered to use the bus and will not be riding it on the first day please let us know using the online form for our accounting purposes. If your camper does not ride the bus on the first day, it will not count toward the three allotted changes.
