Drop Off Specifics

Parking:  Some parking is reserved.  If you park facing the river, that space is open to camp parking.

Day 1: Walk your camper into registration, which is behind Swindell's/St.mary's on campus
Days 2 - 5: Feel free to drop your camper off at the curb, but give your name to the camp counselor there.

NOTE: We will be using an app called Kinderlime to facilitate the sign-in/sign-out process and you will require a 4-digit PIN to drop off and pick up a child from camp.  This PIN will be emailed to you prior to camp.  It is not necessary for you to download the app as you just need the PIN, however if you would like updates on your child's camp day we will be posting some to the app.

Pick Up Specifics

You will need to sign your camper out, which can be done at the registration table, or with the counselor at the curb.

Food

Girls Build will provide breakfast and lunch daily through the generous donation of meals by Bon Appetite.  Girls will have access to at least three different options per meal, and we are confident she will be able to find something to suit her preferences and needs.

WHAT TO WEAR

Participants MUST wear:

  • Closed-toe shoes
  • Short or pants (skirts and dresses are welcome but may hinder her ability to fully participate)
  • Shirts with sleeves (not necessarily long-sleeves, just no tank tops). 

Weather

We will do our best to keep your child in the shade during hot weather, and take extra precautions if the weather reaches higher temps, such as extra breaks and shade time, water intake monitoring and optional water play.

PAYMENT

If you registered under "scholarship", you need to complete the scholarship application sent to you in your confirmation email. once that is completed, girls build can inform you of your scholarship award.
