Check In & Check Out Days

Overnight Camp

CHECK-IN

Check-in is always between 1PM & 3PM for ALL SESSIONS.

Arrival times will be allocated by grade - 1-2PM: 8th-11th & 2-3PM: 4th-7th. If you have both an older and a younger camper, please check in at the 2-3pm time slot. If you are delayed call our office at 860-435-2557.  

Our whole check-in process is drive-thru, and there is no need to exit your vehicle until you reach your camper’s village.

Once you arrive, please make your way to the center of camp (the ‘Oval’) where you will check in with one of our camp directors. If your camper has medications or needs to check in with the nurse, you will be directed to bring the medication to the nurse’s station. 

Families will then be directed to a village check-in location where they will meet the Village Directors and be given their tent assignment. Families will park at the unloading zone at their child’s village and a Sloane staff member will greet you, help bring your camper’s luggage to their tent and introduce them ot their new tent-mates. This is the perfect time to give your camper a HUGE hug and wish them a great time! 

 

CHECK-OUT

Check-out is always between 10AM & 12PM for ALL SESSIONS.

Check-out will also be a drive-thru procedure. Upon arrival at camp, you will be greeted and directed to your child’s check-out location. 

The first stop after greeting will be to sign the check-out document. Please have an ID ready for inspection. You will also receive information about saving your spot for next summer. If you have medications to collect from the camp nurse, you will stop at the nurse’s station. After signing out/collecting medications you will then be directed to your camper’s village. Please park in the designated area and a staff member will help bring your camper’s luggage to the car. Once you have your camper and luggage in the car give them a huge hug – they will be excited to see you! As you are leaving the village have a discussion about next summer - You can save your spot by dropping off the paperwork at the welcome hut by the front entrance.
