Summer Camp Drop Off & Pick Up Procedures

Updated 5/28/21

Our drop-off and pick-up procedures for camp have changed for the 2021 season. Please review this document thoroughly as all of the information is pertinent to camp running smoothly and safely each day this summer.

 

Drop-off   

  • Drop-off begins at 9:15 am. Camp begins at 9:30 am.

  • When you arrive on-site please proceed down the driveway and pull up to the designated drop-off point for your group. There will be an email sent with drop-off and pick-up locations for your camper in the days leading up to each camp week. If you have more than one camper in different groups you may have to drop each child at their separate designated tents.

  • Parents and siblings must remain in the car at all times (except to assist young campers with seat belts). Staff will approach your vehicle. 

  • You will be asked to respond to a standard health question and to attest to your camper’s health:

    • Does your child have any of the following symptoms: fever, shortness of breath or cough?   

  • If the answer to the screening question no, your child may exit the vehicle and will be directed to their “home base” tent where they will immediately wash hands or apply sanitizer.

  • If your child requires medication at camp, we will be accepting them on the first day, inspecting them for proper packing and expiration dates, and they will be kept at camp for the week and returned at Friday drop-off. Children will not be admitted to camp without their prescribed medication or if their medication is expired. Read more about the required forms and waivers here. You may hand off medications to staff after your child has passed the medical screening.

 

Pick-up  

  • The camp day ends at 1:00 pm for our PreK-K groups and 3:00 pm for 1st-8th grade.

  • When you arrive on-site please proceed down the driveway and pull up to the designated pick-up point for your child's group (same as their designated drop-off point). 

  • Parents and siblings must remain in the car at all times (except to assist young campers with seat belts)

  • If you need to make a change to your child’s typical pick-up schedule please email or call the office at (203) 762-7280 with information on any adult retrieving your child.

  • If you wish/need to speak at length with camp staff, you  will be directed to a parking spot and Senior Staff will come speak with you. You may also reach our Camp Director Sarah Breznen during camp hours at (203) 731-9832 or sbreznen@woodcocknaturecenter.org.

Did you know that Wilton is a no-idling town? Whenever possible during drop off/pick up, please do not leave your vehicle idling. See more info from our friends at Wilton Go Green here

Thank you in advance for your understanding and patience with these new procedures!
We may make adjustments throughout the summer as necessary.
