Closing Day

While we are always sad to see our campers go, we know you will be excited to see your daughter again and hear all about her camp experience.

For Closing Day, we welcome parents to walk around and enjoy our camp property. You will be able to park your car, meet your daughter’s cabinmates and counselor(s), and then tour camp with your daughter. It will be a fun morning!

Arrival & Departure Times

We ask that you arrive between 9:00 - 11:00 a.m., and if previous years are any indication, we expect most parents to arrive no later than 10:30 a.m. We ask that all campers and parents depart by 11:30 a.m.

Luggage

We will have luggage sorted in our Fort by cabin group and by camper. After picking up your daughter, you will load your luggage in your car. We will have staff available to help carry your luggage to your car, as cars will not be able to pull directly in front of the Fort due to exiting traffic.

Express Pick-Up

As we know many parents need to hop on the road quickly, we will offer an Express Pick-Up option at our June, Main, and August Camps. You will be able to pull in our back gate between 8 - 8:30 a.m., and we will have your daughter and her luggage ready and waiting. We will load your car, allowing you to be on your way quickly.

We will ask that you register for this Express Pick-Up option so that we can have your daughter and her luggage ready on Closing Day, and we will send information about registering after the start of your daughter’s session. You will not be able to park or walk around the property (which is why this is an Express Pick-Up!), so please talk to your daughter about this Express option before the summer so she is prepared for Closing Day.

We will also ask that any parents who have been sick, exposed to COVID, or who are experiencing any COVID symptoms themselves to use the Express Pick-Up option on Closing Day. This will help keep our counselors healthy as they prepare for the next session.

More Details to Come

We will send more details about Closing Day, including how to register for Express Pick-Up, once your daughter’s session is underway.

On Closing Day, the gates open at 8:00 a.m., and we encourage you to be here before 9:30 a.m. You will park in the same manner as Opening Day, then walk up the hill to your daughter’s cabin.

On Closing Day, we will offer a light breakfast buffet in the Dining Hall for families to eat with their camper. Feel free to enjoy this buffet together, grab a cup of coffee, take a tour of your daughter’s classes, visit The Greystone Store, and then gather her luggage from the track. We ask that all families depart by 11 a.m.

Animals must be on a leash and stay below our Lower Road. Please do not take any animals into the cabin area.

We will carry all of your daughter’s heavier items down to the track and sort them by cabin. Each bag will be tagged “1 of 4”, “2 of 4”, etc. Please make sure you get all of your daughter’s bags. We will have staff available to help load your car before you leave.

Leaving by Car

Car or Airplane Departure?

We need to know how you plan to pick up your daughter on Closing Day on her online Travel form (available in the spring). If you will be driving into camp to get here (either by car from your home or by renting a car after you’ve arrived by plane), your daughter is considered a CAR departure. Only girls who are taken to the airport with a shuttle provided by Greystone are considered flying home from camp.

Travel Form

Make sure we have the correct information on your Travel Form so we know how your daughter is departing on Closing Day.
