Late Drop Off

Campers arriving after 9:15 AM must be brought to the Sidwell Summer office (located next to the Fox Den) to be checked in. Sidwell Summer staff will then walk your camper to their program.

Please pick up your campers where your youngest child’s pick up is located. Campers will not be allowed to leave camp on their own without written authorization from parents.  Please email to authorize campers to use public transit or walk home.

Late Pick Up Policy at the End of the Camp Day

At 3:30 PM, any campers remaining at carpool is considered a late pick up.  Campers will be taken to the Sidwell Summer Office until a parent or designated person picks up the camper(s).

Late Pick-Up Fees:  Our staff’s time is valuable to us as is the time of our families. Therefore, late pick-up fees are incurred beginning at 3:30 PM. Payment is due at the time of pick up – no exceptions. Payments can be made by cash, check or credit card in the office. If a camper is picked up within 15 minutes of the designated pick-up time, it is a flat fee of $15.00. Campers picked up between 3:45 PM – 4:00PM from the camp office are charged a fee of $50.00. Campers pick up after 4:00 PM are charged $75.00. Please note charges are per camper and will apply to each child.

Note – Campers are not taken to the Camp ‘til Six program. This program is for pre-registered campers only. Campers will be in the summer office for pick-up.  Serious infractions, either based on frequency of late pick-ups or duration of any single pick up, may result in dismissal from camp program.
