How does the drop-off and pick-up process work?
All pick-ups and drop-offs are held in the back parking lot at Southport Congregational Church. Drop-off begins no earlier than 9:15am. Pick-up occurs promptly at 3:30pm. Campers are not dismissed until a parent/guardian has been seen, and the camper has shaken the hand of a staff member acknowledging their dismissal,at which time parents/guardians assume responsibility of the child. All drivers must proceed slowly and patiently as children are walking through the parking lot.

If you know your child will be absent, late, or need to leave early, please send a note with them the previous day or complete the Attendance Notification Form on the Contact Us page.
