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), visit The Greystone Store, and then tour camp with your daughter. It will be a fun morning!
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 9:45 a.m. We ask that all campers and parents depart by 11:30 a.m.
We will have luggage sorted in our Fort by cabin group and by camper. After arriving, 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.
Any Lost and Found collected throughout the session will be available to see in the Fort on Closing Day. If any of your labeled items are found after you leave, we will mail those to you and will charge the postage cost to your Personal Allowance account.
Make sure to bring an extra bag with you! Your daughter’s things will have multiplied, and she will most likely have a large Greystone tote bag full of odds and ends. Bring an extra duffel bag to make your airport check-in a breeze.
As we know many parents need to hop on the road quickly, we offer an Express Pick-Up option at our June, Main, and August Camps. With Express, you can 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. 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 ask that you register for the Express Pick-Up option (available in the spring) so that we can have your daughter and her luggage ready to go on Closing Day. You must register for Express at least one week prior to Closing Day.
We need to know how you plan to pick up your daughter on Closing Day on her Travel Forms (to be completed in the spring), which you can fill out through her Online Account or through the Campanion app. If you will be driving into camp (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.
As you prepare to pick your daughter up from camp, know that the transition back home to the “real world” can be a big deal for some girls! Here are some tips and tricks as you prepare for Closing Day:
