Can campers be picked up during the session?

We ask that you do not pick up any camper during a session, as it strongly impacts his/her and the other campers’ trip experience. We thank you in advance for selecting the correct session(s) for your summer schedule. Please contact the director of your child’s program immediately if you have an issue with any of the dates scheduled.
