Opening & Closing Day Logistics

Opening and Closing Day may look different this summer.

We will be evaluating and updating our Opening Day drop-off procedures to protect the health of campers, staff, and parents and to comply with the latest state guidelines as we get closer to the summer.

*The information below was for Summer 2020. Opening Day logistics for Summer 2021 will be released as we get closer to the summer.*

 

Opening Day:

Arrival Times:  Check-In is 2:30-4pm. Parents will be assigned a 30 minute window to arrive for Opening Day check-in.  These times will be sent to families by the Wednesday before your scheduled session.

Drop off at Cabin:  Parents will be required to stay in their vehicles and will drive through camp to drop campers and luggage off right at their cabins.  To help reduce the risk of exposure, we’re asking families to limit the number of people and pets coming to drop off your camper.

Meet the counselor:  As you drop your camper off at the cabin, you’ll get the opportunity to meet the counselor (through your car window!).  Don’t worry mom… Even though you won’t be able to go in the cabin, the counselor will help your camper make their bed and get settled in!

Health Check:  We’ll be doing a health screen & checking temperatures of all passengers in the vehicle upon arrival, so it would be a good idea to check them at home before you leave so there aren’t any surprises when you arrive!  If you can answer yes to any of these questions please email Jennj@cho-yeh.org before noon on the Saturday before your arrival.

In the past 14 days have you experienced:

  • a temperature greater than 100.0?
  • a new or worsening cough?
  • shortness of breath?
  • a sore throat?
  • diarrhea?
  • had close contact with an individual diagnosed with COVID 19?

Arrival Luggage:  This year, each camper should pack all luggage & bedding into one trunk/large duffle bag. Remember to clearly label your trunk or bag with your camper’s name! As you arrive at the cabin, just pop the trunk & our team will grab your luggage and bring it to the cabin.

Trading Post:  A drive through Trading Post will be available on Opening day and all purchased items will be delivered to the camper’s cabin by Sunday evening.  Parents can also place orders ahead of time through our online store and items will be waiting for your camper when they arrive.

Camper Mail:  To comply with the State Health Protocols, Cho-Yeh will not be able to receive or distribute traditional “snail mail” that arrives during the week. Letters and small packages can be dropped off at the “Mail Drop-Off Station” on Opening Day.  If you forget something for your camper, contact us and we’ll help take care of it.

Closing Day:

Closing Day pick up procedures will be similar to picking someone up at the airport.  Campers will be grouped and stationed in designated locations waiting for parents to arrive.  As you arrive, you will be directed to your camper’s location where they are waiting with their luggage.

Our counselors will greet you, load the luggage in your car & say goodbye to your camper!

Arrival Times: Check-Out begins at 10:30am. To help manage traffic, parents will be assigned one of two pickup time slots.  Please do your best to arrive within your time slot.

Camper Cabin Tags: Parents must display the Camper Cabin Tag on their dash upon arrival. This tag will be distributed on Opening Day. Campers will only be released to the vehicle with the proper tag. Vehicles without the proper tag will have to present a photo ID and be listed on the “Permission to Pick Up” form we have on file.

Medication Pick-up: If there are any remaining medications that need to be picked up, please be sure to let your counselor know as they load your luggage. Our medical staff will be nearby and available to help answer any questions you may have.

Early Departures: If you need to pick up your child early from camp, please let us know IN WRITING by completing the Early Departure form available at the check-in tables on Opening Day. No early departures are allowed after 8am on Closing Day.

Permission to Pick-up:  If you would like to give someone else permission to pick up your child, you must give them your Camper Cabin Tag AND submit a “Permission to Pick-up” form located in your parent account.

Trading Post Refunds:  Any unused funds in your camper’s Trading Post account will automatically be refunded the week following your camper’s session.

Pre-Registration for Summer 2022:  All Pre-Registration will be done online this year.  Campers who Pre-Register  prior to pick-up or before leaving camp will receive an exclusive 2022 t-shirt.  Registration fee of $150 (non-refundable and non-transferable) is required at the time of registration.
