Parents' Program/ Pick Up
The overnight camp Parents’ Program
takes place on Friday from
7:00 - 7:45 pm in the Jepson Forum.
Parking is available in the upper field.
This is not only a time to pick up your
child, but to hear a recap of the week
at camp, to see the camp DVD for that
week, and to fellowship with your camper's counselor. There will be an opportunity to get a refund or donate your camper's remaining store money, purchase a photo or photo CD, and pick up any leftover medications from the Camp Medic. Campers will also receive a parent packet which includes their cabin picture and photo CD (if purchased) and other important camp information. All campers must be picked up by the end of the Parents' Program.Special Schedules
If your child needs to miss any portion of their camp session, please notify the main office of your schedule conflicts as soon as possible. Notifying your child’s counselor of early pick up times will not ensure your child will be ready when you arrive; please call the main office at (425) 746-9110. Campers that miss a portion of the camp program will not be able to make up missed activities. Should you schedule a pick up for your child in the middle of an activity, they may need to miss the entire activity. In fairness to other campers, boats will not be brought back before the scheduled end time of each activity block. Please check with our office manager concerning the best time to pick up your child if they must leave early.What to Bring
