Check-in will be a drive-through process this summer. We recommend that just one parent come with the camper to limit exposure in the car. If friends ride together, all car passengers must wear masks during the entire trip. Pack carefully. Campers should be able to hand carry anything that is not packed in a trunk or plastic bin.
Parents will not get out of the car at camp unless that need to use the restroom. There will be no letter or package drop-off on Opening Day. You may wish to drop letters in the Post Office mailbox in Menlo on your way down the mountain.
Drive-Through Process (details may change):
1. Enter the gate. Wear a mask.
2. On the entrance road, the car will be greeted by a masked staff member who will get the camper's name and confirm that necessary forms have been receieved.
3. At the next stop, healthcare staff will take temperature and screen the camper for symptoms. The camper will get out of the car for a lice check. If the camper has lice, healthcare staff will discuss options. If all is well, the parent will drop off any medications, bagged with the Medication Instructions form. If discussion is needed with the healthcare supervisor or the camp director, the parent will be directed to drive into a separate area so traffic flow is not interrupted.
4. With the camper back in the car, the parent will be directed to drive to the luggage stop, where staff will unload luggage except for items that camper will hand carry to the tent. (Anyone who needs a restroom may use those behind the Staff House).
5. The parent will then be directed to drive to the traffic circle. At the designated spot for her unit, the camper will leave the vehicle with stuff to be hand carried to the tent. The camper will be greeted by a counselor or CIT, wave good-bye to parent, and use hand sanitizer.
6. Parent will leave via the exit road.
7. Counselors (or CITs assigned to the unit) will walk campers to units wearing masks. All will wash hands on entry to unit.
8. Trunks and bins will be delivered to the tents. Counselors or CITs will assist with bed making for the younger campers. Beds will be made with pillows towards the outside of the tent; campers will sleep “toe-to-toe.”
