We love Opening Day at camp! Even with the changes to Opening Day this summer, we are confident that the first day of camp is going to be a wonderful experience for parents and campers. We will greet you at your car like always, go over a few health questions, carry your luggage to the cabin for you, and walk your daughter to her cabin to meet her counselor and cabinmates! Parents will need to stay in their cars the entire time. Our counselors will help your daughter move into the cabin and unpack, making sure she is settled and her space feels homey.
You can read all of the details about Opening Day for this summer on our Opening Day information updates page:
For this summer, all campers need to arrive with their completed Health Log and a negative COVID test. All campers also need to arrive on Opening Day (not at a later date) so that we can close our “camp bubble” and keep our campers safe.
1721 Old US Highway 25
Zirconia, NC 28790
This is our back staff entrance. We will send a pinned link to this address through our Remind texting system prior to Opening Day.
Once parents depart, cabins will go as groups to take a cabin picture and then will have a swim check together. The rest of the day will include a wonderful lunch, an opening camp meeting, fun afternoon activities, our famous spaghetti dinner, and the first of many outstanding Evening Programs!
Campers must jump in the pool, tread water for two minutes, and swim one length of the pool. We will work with campers who do not pass the first time, and they will be allowed to retake the swim check the next day.
Girls will need to swim one length of the pool, tread water for 2 minutes, and do a pencil dive off the diving board. If your daughter has trouble completing any of these, we will help her sign up for swim lessons, and she will need to retake the test to participate in some of our water activities.
We need to know how your daughter will arrive on Opening Day. If you will be driving into camp to drop her off (either by car from your home or by renting a car after you’ve arrived by plane), your daughter is considered a CAR arrival. Only girls who are flying to camp and need a Greystone counselor to pick them up from the airport are considered an airplane arrival.
