Parent Driver

parent driverParent Driver check in

The majority of our campers ride the bus. The rest of the campers arrive by parent driver (PD)

Drop-Off and Pick-Up Times

Morning: PD’s arrive between 8:10-8:25
Afternoon: PD’s arrive between 3:50-4:05

In the afternoon, the wait can be up to twenty minutes. We appreciate your patience!

Because our road has limited access, we only have space for a certain number of parent driver cars. We encourage families to carpool to cut down on the length of wait for PD’s.

To access the parent driver application, once you are enrolled in camp, log in to your CampMinder account and fill out the “Transportation and Extended Day Options” form and indicate that you will drive to camp. This form will prompt the parent driver form to now appear in your forms to fill out. Please call 978-443-3100 or email with any questions about this process.

MORNING DROP-OFF PROCEDURE
Sprouts without enrolled siblings have a different dropoff procedure (see below)

  2. Follow the one way road to the right of headquarters, up and around the hill to the drop-off point at Tiki Depot. The speed limit on the camp road is 10 mph.
  3. For safety reasons, counselors will unload your car from the passenger side, so please plan ahead with seating arrangements.
  4. To expedite the process, please remain in your car and allow the counselor to help your child leave your vehicle.
  5. If you arrive after 8:25, please wait in Visitor Parking until 9:00 and then walk your camper up to the office. Due to the buses unloading, we cannot have any cars on the road from 8:25 – 9:00am.

AFTERNOON PICK-UP PROCEDURE
Sprouts have a different pick-up procedure (see below)

  3. Please give way to cars that are leaving as you are entering if you are passing at a narrow area of the driveway.
  4. In order for this process to work efficiently, the buses must leave before you arrive so please do not come early and potentially block the driveway. If you do arrive early, pull into the Visitor Parking area and line up as directed.
