Park Camps Additional Details

Lunch and Snacks

Campers can purchase lunch for the week or bring their own lunch. Lunch is not available for purchase on a daily basis. Lunch can be purchased up until the Thursday before your camp begins. Families can view the lunch menu and add it to their registration in CampBrain. Campers should bring their own snacks to eat during morning and afternoon breaks.

Drop-Off and Pick-Up Procedures

  •  MORNING DROP-OFF takes place from 8:15 to 8:30 a.m. AFTERNOON PICK-UP takes place from 3:45 to 4 p.m. For half-day campers (Cubs only), pick-up takes place between 12:45 to 1 p.m. We do not offer before or after care, so all campers are required to be dropped off and picked up at these times. 
  •  SCHOOL’S OUT SPORTS CAMP (June 11-14; June 17-21), drop-off and pick-up takes place in the Athletic Center Parking Lot. Follow the signs to the carpool line, which will take place at the Athletic Center entrance. 
  •  ALL CAMPS that run June 24-July 26: 
    •  Drop-off and pick-up for the Cubs campers takes place at the Kindergarten building. NOTE: You will have to re-enter the carpool line if picking up an older camper. 
    •  Drop-Off for all other camps (Bears, Bruins, Specialty, CIT, Travel Camp) take place at the overhang of the main building. Once you turn onto Park School Drive, continue straight down the hill until you get to the overhang. The carline will be on the right side of the road at the bottom of the hill. 
    •  Pick-up for Bears and Bruins campers will take place at the same location as drop-off. 
    •  Pick-up for Specialty Camps and CIT takes place at the Middle School carpool lane with the green awning. Follow the signs in the parking lot to ensure you go to the correct pick-up line. NOTE: Families that have siblings in different groups will pick-up at the OLDER sibling location, as our staff will ensure that the younger sibling joins the older one at that location. 
    •  On your first day of camp, campers will receive two carpool cards. Display this card on the passenger side dashboard or visor so that the counselors can see who you are picking up. This is very important so that we can radio ahead and have your child ready to hop in. If you are picking up more than one child, please display each child’s name. Need additional cards? No problem. Email
    • Please DO NOT exit your car during drop-off or pick-up. Camp staff oversees drop-off and pick-up to ensure that it happens safely and efficiently, and counselors help campers get into or out of cars and buckle into seat belts if necessary. If you need extra time at drop-off or pick-up, please park your car and walk over to drop off or pick up your child. 
    • Email Park Camps to share specific information about late drop-offs, early pick-ups and/or change of pick-up person. We ask that this information is shared as far in advance as possible so that we can plan accordingly. If sharing information about a late drop-off or early pick-up on the day itself, please call the camp office at 410-339-4120. All late arrivals and early pick-ups will take place at the Lower School drop-off circle.

What to Wear and What to Bring to Camp

  • Families should label EVERYTHING (clothes, water bottles, etc.) with the camper’s first and last name. 
  • Campers should come prepared for active outdoor activities. Clothes should be comfortable and suitable for situations that may produce soil, grass, or water stains and the wear and tear of normal play and learning. Swim gear, including water shoes and goggles, are essential.

Campers should also bring ear plugs, a hair cap, and/or hair tie if they typically use those when swimming.

NOTE: Cubs and Bears should wear swimwear to camp each day to be prepared for swimming and/or water play.

  • Full payment for all campers must be received by May 1 in order to secure their space in camp.
  • All camper forms must be completed by May 1.
