DROP OFF AND PICK UP PROCEDURES
  • Drop off and Pick up will be curbside. The Camp Director will be outside during drop off and pick up to facilitate the process.
  • A car line will start at 8:50 am, so you can drive up and drop off to the Camp Director. We will be ready to greet your child and escort campers into the school. Please have your child ready to exit the car on the curb side. Campers are expected to be on time and ready to participate at the beginning of camp.
  • DO NOT leave until your camper checks in with the camp director.
  • Each family will receive four name placards for pick up. Distribute these placards to anyone authorized to pick up your camper. Placards will need to be displayed on the dash. If you do not have a placard in your vehicle, you will be asked for a Photo ID and MUST be listed as an authorized pick up person. NO EXCEPTIONS. Placards will be available for pick up in the Parks & Recreation office M-F, 8:00 am - 4:30 pm starting on June 3rd and will be available for pickup until the 14th.
  • Campers must be picked up promptly. There will be a late fee assessed of $5 for every five minutes you are late picking up your child, after an initial ten minutes. (i.e. car line has ended) This late fee is per camper.
  • Late drop offs and early pickups are discouraged. If it is necessary, please notify the director ahead of time and call the cell phone number of the camp director when you arrive. The Camp Director will escort your child in or bring them out. The main office staff at the schools have asked that you refrain from ringing the door bell.
  • Please be aware of the safety of others when dropping off or picking up your child. Be considerate and patient, and watch your speed when pulling in and out of the parking lot.
  • BIKERS - If your child is permitted to ride their bike to and from camp, please email Matt at mattz@newtownpa.gov with written approval and we will pass the information along to the camp director.

If your child receives services (from the Intermediate Unit, or Private Therapy) for any special need, developmental delay, or otherwise, it is advantageous to provide the Parks and Recreation Department with a copy of the Individualized Service Plan (or similar). Our staff will use this information to help your child have a successful camp experience. All information will be handled with discretion, maintaining confidentiality.

Medication must be dropped off by the parent/guardian to the Camp Director or to the Parks & Recreation office. All medications left at camp after August 11 will be discarded, no exceptions.
