Check-in and Pick-up Procedures

Monday Check-in
Check-in begins at 8:45 a.m. for morning camps and 12 p.m. for afternoon camps. We’ll ask you to review your contact and emergency information while our counselors help your camper meet his/her camp instructor and give him/her a name tag.

Opening Ceremony
On Mondays, we will be holding an opening ceremony at the beginning of the morning camps (9 a.m.). We would love to have parents join us! After the ceremony, there will be refreshments for parents in the Grand Entry and an opportunity to take a tour of campus.

Tuesday-Friday Check-in
You may bring your camper to the Plaza to join his/her camp, or simply drop your camper off by the Plaza. Your camper will pick up a nametag and check in when he/she meets his/her camp instructor.

Every Day Pickup

Pickup lasts for 15 minutes after camps have ended (until 12 p.m. for morning camps and 3:15 p.m. for afternoon camps). After pickup has ended, we will enroll your child in After Care for the day and bill you accordingly.Please email us at least 24 hours in advance if you are planning to have your child enrolled in After Care. Plan to walk up to the Plaza to pick up your child from the camp instructor and sign out every day. Only 5th through 9th graders may sign themselves out with parent permission. All younger campers must be picked up; they will not be allowed to walk to parents’ cars.

If you would like someone else to pick up your child, please fill out the Authorized People to Pick Up Child Form in advance.

Friday Closing Ceremony

Join us in the Arena for a special closing ceremony at 11:30 a.m. (morning camps) and 2:45 p.m. (afternoon camps). We’ll watch a slide show and share highlights from the week!

Lunchtime

If your child is staying all day, he/she will eat during our lunchtime (11:45 a.m. 12:15 p.m.). You should have already filled out the Lunch Form to indicate if your camper will be purchasing lunch. If they wish, campers may bring a nonperishable lunch. Please clearly mark lunches with each camper’s name and/or bring cash for your camper to purchase lunch.

*Because some of our campers have severe nut allergies, we ask that all campers refrain from bringing lunch items that contain nuts.

Find more information about lunchtime, including a sample menu.

T-Shirts

Every camper will receive one Camp Westminster t-shirt during the first week that he/she attends camp. Campers may wear their camp t-shirt on Wednesday.

Medical Reminders

Thank you for completing the online Health History Form for Camp Westminster. We will have a registered nurse available from 93 p.m. If your child requires medication, such as an EpiPen or inhaler during camp, please ensure that it is properly labeled and in its original pharmacy container. Our camp nurses, Sue Haverstick and Amy Kendrick, will be present at check-in to collect medication and discuss any concerns or questions you might have. You may contact them at shaverstick@wcastl.org or akendrick@wcastl.org.

Specific Camp Information

Children should wear appropriate summer clothing for active play. We advise tennis shoes or sturdy sandals for all campers. For outdoor camps, we expect campers to bring and apply their own sunscreen or come with it already applied. Camp instructors and counselors may not apply sunscreen to campers. See below for specific camp instructions about what campers should wear and bring, in addition to other key information.
