Overnight Check-In Procedures

STEP 1: Report to Klinger Hall between 2:00 – 4:00 PM EST!

Staff will not be available to assist you until 2:00 PM EST. Please note that our gates will be closed until 2:00 PM. Families typically arrive early and wait in line outside Klinger Hall. If you arrive early, we recommend taking a short jaunt up the road to “Corey Lake Orchard” for a fresh apple cider smoothie. Klinger hall is where you will actually check-in for Camp, receive your cabin assignment, schedule, and turn in any medications you might have (see Health & Safety section). We will also quickly check your camper for head lice. Those little buggers can be a drag at Camp and it’s always best to stay ahead of that problem. Please note that the 2021 check-in process will take additional time as a COVID-19 Rapid Antigen Test is required for all campers. Click here to learn more about our COVID-19 protocol.

STEP 2: Set up your bunk

After your camper is checked in, head down to their cabin and set up their bunk. Picking a bunk is a science. We recommend bunking with someone you have never met before and make a new friend right off the bat. For safety reasons, only one adult is allowed in the cabin with their camper at a time. Everyone must use hand sanitizer before entering a wear a mask at all time. 

STEP 3: Time to say farewell

As dramatic as you can make it, in front of as many of their peers as you can, make sure you hug them and send them on their way to have the best week(s) of their lives at Camp!


All campers must complete a swim assessment where they will receive a red, yellow, or green band. This will be done Sunday after check-in, once you have set up your bunk. A green band demonstrates an ability to stay in the deep end of the swimming area without any significant risk, a yellow band demonstrates a beginner’s ability at swimming but maybe not the full ability to be safe in the deep end. A red band is for campers who are beginners in the water and who our staff would need to recognize in order to keep Camp safe.

If your camper receives a red band, we will call you and see if we can make some shifts to their schedule to get them into a swimming period to take swimming lessons. Campers need a yellow band for BCK and a green band for water skiing and sailing. For your child’s safety, we include swimming lessons in all of the swimming activity periods.

Friday Evening Check-Out

Check-out time is from 4:30-6:00 PM EST.

Pick-up time is between 4:30-6:00 PM EST. To assure your child's safety, please present a government-authorized photo ID and make certain you, or who you have identified to pick up your camper, are listed as an authorized person to pick up the camper. We ask that you don't pick your camper up early unless absolutely necessary. Campers are engaging in and enjoying activities right up until pick-up time. Those who are picked up early will miss out on our fun Friday activities!

If picking up your camper late, please let us know in advance. There may be an additional fee for campers who require late pick-up. More importantly, we want to assure your child we are aware of when to expect you.
