+ HOW DO I PICK UP/DROP OFF MY CAMPER?
Drop-off time for all camps is from 9:00 – 9:30 AM at the street level entrance (to the right of the main entrance by the large iron gates.) Please be prepared to sign your camper in. Pick-up for camps is from 2:30 – 3:00 PM, also at the street level entrance. Please be prepared to sign your camper out by providing proper identification.
