GETTING TO CAMP

We offer two options for day camp transportation: bus service or parent drop-off/pick-up

PARENT TRANSPORTATION

MORNING DROP OFF

8:45 AM - 8:50 AM

AFTERNOON PICK UP

4:15 PM - 4:30 PM

At drop off, parents will be asked to pull through the circle, drop their camper off, and wave goodbye as their camper joins the group at the pavilion.

 

At pick up, your child please make sure you have a photo I.D. ready. You will tell the staff member which child you are picking up and group they are in, and they will direct your car to where to go. You will need you show your I.D. to your child’s counselor once you get to where your child’s group is being picked up. Your child will have their Daily Dose of Day Camp form and any reminders for the following day in their camp folder.

Your Camp Counselors

The majority of our day camp staff are long-time Mohawk campers, who have worked their way up as campers, Counselors-in-Training (CITs), Junior Counselors, and Counselors! These talented young women have committed their summers to Mohawk and its campers for years and couldn’t imagine not giving another year to camp. We have also hired several local staff from other camps & youth programs. We are excited to have so many experienced, skilled counselors to help your campers have the summer of a lifetime.
