First Day Information

Optional New Camper Orientation

Wednesday, May 28 & Wednesday, June 4

5pm @ Bush Auditorium

We will be offering orientations for our new campers and their parents. If you have any last minute questions about Rollins Summer Camp please plan on attending one of the sessions. Summer Camp staff will be available to answer any questions and give tours of the campus during this time.

This is a completely optional orientation for new campers and their parents. If you are not available to attend an orientation all camp information can also be found on our website (rollins.edu/camp).

All camp materials including nametags, camp schedules, and vehicle tags will be given out on the first day of camp for each session.

    

 

First Day Details

Please park in the SunTrust Parking Garage (Lyman/Park Avenue) and escort your camper to Camp Base located in Hooker Hall to pick up their name badge, camp schedule, and vechicle tags. Check in will be from 8:00 - 9:00am.

 

A.M. Supervised Recreation and A.M. Swimming/Tennis/Sailing Classes on First Day

The additional A.M. Supervised Recreation and Beginner and Competitive Swimming/Tennis/Sailing classes will be taking place on the first day of camp. You may drop your camper off at Camp Base.

 

Drop-off and Pick-up Information

  • Traditional Day Drop-off: 8:45 a.m. - 9:00 a.m.
  • Traditional Day Pick-up: 3:00 p.m. - 3:15 p.m.*
  • A.M. Supervised Recreation Drop-off, Swimming, & Tennis: In order to ensure the campers' safety, all campers must be physically walked into Camp Base, not just dropped off outside. Please park in the 15 minute parking spots located near Camp Base. You will need to escort your camper(s) into Camp Base office. There will be directional signs leading to Camp Base
  • P.M. Supervised Recreation Pick-up: Please park in the 15 minute parking spots located near Camp Base. Follow the directional signs that lead to Camp Base. Campers must be signed out of camp base each day. Only the authorized adults on the pick-up list will be able to sign the camper(s) out. To ensure the campers' safety, ID's will be checked, so please bring a valid picture ID for verification.

*Traditional afternoon pick-up starts at 3:00 p.m. and thus we strongly urge parents not to arrive earlier than 3:00 p.m., as that will create traffic woes. The line of cars can be moved quickly if we do not have a line of cars waiting prior to 3:00 p.m. Campers are not available at the pick-up site until 3:00 p.m. Campers who are not picked up by 3:20 p.m. will be brought to Camp Base. Fees will be assesed for campers who have multiple late pick-ups.

 

What to Bring

Please send your child with a backpack. They will not be given lockers, so a backpack is great to hold their belongings. *Please label all of your camper's belongings, backpacks, water bottles, etc.* Please pack their backpacks with any materials needed for classes, i.e. swim suits, towels, sun screen, personal tennis racquets, etc. Please also send snacks and bottled water with your children (see the Lunch Menu & Snacks section for more information).

Other notes: Please have your children wear closed-toe shoes due to the rugged terrain. "Wheely" shoes are not permitted. Please leave electronic games, iPods, and other expensive devices at home.

 

Medication Information

If your child requires medication during the hours they will be attending camp, please fill out the Medication Authorization Form and submit it to Camp Base. Please do not submit this form prior to the first day of camp.


Campers take the plunge into the Rollins swimming pool.
