Opening Day

To assist in preparing for Opening Day, please watch the 2021 Opening Day video.

There are several new things we’ll be introducing for the 2021 season, including how Opening Day will flow. Due to this summer’s COVID-19 adjustments, parents will not be able to exit their vehicle on Opening Day. We’ve created an informative video you may watch with your son(s), here, so that everyone knows what to expect on Opening Day this year!

Please arrive between 9:00am and 11:30am. If your family is traveling in more than one car, please carpool from a nearby gas station (Hwy 25, Exit 3) to reduce traffic on Opening and Closing Days. Due to Covid-19 precautions, we request minimizing the number of family members present for Opening and Closing Days. We request that each person in the car remain in the car at all times and wear a mask for the duration of drop-off.

Your son’s trunk/large luggage will be removed from your car as you are arriving (before you park) and delivered to his cabin. Please pack your car so the trunk is easily accessible. Also, please remove the wheels from the trunk before arrival as they often get lost. If trunks are shipped to camp and your camper has no additional luggage, you will be directed to camper drop-off.

Campers will be dropped off in the Visitor Parking Lot and taken by a counselor to the gym area to connect with other members of their line. From there, they will be escorted to their cabin to join their cabin mates and counselor(s) to begin settling in.

In order for us to keep cars moving to accommodate everyone’s timely arrival, please do not linger at the camper drop-off! Be prepared to say quick good-byes and know that your camper will be united with his cabin mates and counselors quickly. We will assist you in the case of a difficult separation.

Opening Day Health Concerns

In the interest of a healthy camp community, if your son has a fever or is sick within 24-hours of Opening Day, please contact camp to make arrangements for a late arrival.


If it is suspected that your son may have been exposed to head lice prior to camp, please perform a lice treatment before arrival and notify the Infirmary staff about your concern. A head check for lice may be obtained from your local doctor or a treatment center such as Pediatric Hair Solutions. If a camper comes to camp with lice, we will arrange for professional care. The cost of this treatment is $350, payable to the third-party provider. Parents will be responsible for the cost of treatment.
