When dropping off and picking up your children from camp, you can keep your flashers on in our drop-off zone which is right in front of the College of Music on Ave. C. Please do NOT park in the drop-off zone. Pull up your car as far down Ave C. in front of the music building as you can to pick up and drop off. We ask that you heed the directions of camp counselors who will be directing cars in the drop-off lane. If you are asked to pull forward, please pull forward, even if you see your child. This will greatly expedite the process.
