Information for Sprouts Parent Drivers (PDs)
In the morning, Sprouts may take the bus or be dropped of by a parent/guardian. Sprouts must be picked up by a parent/guardian in the afternoon.
Here are a few simple procedures that will facilitate the drop off and pick up of your child/children.
Parent Driver Identification Cards:
- Prior to the beginning of your child’s session, you will receive two Parent Driver ID Cards in the mail. Please be sure to have one of these ID cards displayed in the car windshield when you drive your child to and from camp. Additional cards have been included for the person/people you listed other than parents who have permission to pick up your child. Please note: By giving a card to someone, you are giving your permission for that person to pick up your child at any time. If you would rather it be on a case by case basis for a particular day, do not give the person the card and just send a signed note with your child that morning giving that individual permission for that day.
- If you listed another parent driver as having permission to pick up your child, an additional card will be provided for them. If they are picking up your child as well as their own, they should display both your card and their own in their window.
- These cards serve as identification for those who have permission to pick up your child. If a card is ever lost or stolen, notify us immediately and we will issue you new cards.
- Please note that these cards must be with you in order for us to release your child to you in the Parent Driver line.
Drop-Off in the Morning
- NEW ENTRANCE AS OF 2021: Arrive at the Sprouts entrance (at the end of Greystone Lane) between 8:45 and 9:00. The speed limit on Julian’s Way and Greystone Lane is 25 mph. Directions to the Sprouts entrance: Turn onto Julian’s Way, between the main camp entrance and the Haynes School. Follow Julian’s Way to the end, then take a right onto Greystone Lane.

- Please make sure you have completed your camper’s screening form via CampMinder or the Campanion app each day, and have confirmation ready to show the counselor upon arrival (confirmation page, email, or screenshot on your phone). If you have not completed the screening form, please wait at the gate with your camper and fill out the form then, if that can not be done a counselor will screen your child.
- Campers should arrive wearing their masks and will be asked to sanitize their hands upon arrival.
