Drop-Off / Pick-Up

Residential campers should arrive during the designated registration times. Commuters should arrive fifteen minutes before the first training session of each day. At pick-up all campers must sign out by the person picking them up wether they are a commuter leaving daily or a residential camper departing at the end of camp. If a camper is being picked up by someone other than their parent or legal guardian we will need a note prior to the beginning of that day. If a camper is driving themselves to camp we will have proper communication to make sure e every camper is accounted for. We encourage the person picking up the camper to be on time. We understand that unforeseen  circumstances may lead to a late pick-up and we ask that when this happens, a phone call should be made immediately to the camp office. We will have a camp staff member on duty supervising until the last camper is picked up. A shuttle to and from the airport is available for both arrival and departure for a $25 charge. To reserve the shuttle either e-mail grazierb@slu.edu or call (732) 718-5562 with flight details and requested pick-up times.
