Sign-in will begin at 9:00 am at The Incarnation Center on Tuesday morning, July 11th, 2017. Please do not plan to arrive earlier than this because we'll likely be putting finishing touches on camp!
Parents/guardians are welcome to help their child/children check-in, carry their luggage to their rooms, and view the facilities. But, after this, all families need to say goodbye to their campers. We may only have staff and campers on the The Incarnation Center grounds after drop-off.
We have both parking areas and luggage drop off areas available for you. We also have volunteers to assist you with both parking and carrying luggage and other items. Look for older campers with empty hands who are asking if you need help!
Those individuals who are driving themselves to camp may park in designated areas. Once the car is parked, it is to remain there until the end of the week.
This is a basic schedule. It will change slightly and will be made available each day at camp, so there is no need to memorize it.

Wednesday A note for early risers: We prefer to have the campers sleep as much as possible since our days are very full. But, we also understand that kids are individuals. We allow quiet activities for those who wake up early starting at 7:00am in the Quad, weather permitting, or in the Great Room in The Lodge. Children who wake up earlier should be prepared to read quietly in their rooms using a book light so that they do not wake their roommate. This applies every morning.
