Answers to your Early Drop-off and Aftercare questions for Minnesota, Illinois, Massachusetts, and Maine regarding age, hours, price, where it happens, and what goes on.
Early Drop-off in Central & East Coast Camps
Hours: 8:00-8:45 AM, M-F
What Happens During Early Drop-off
Early Drop-off allows campers to arrive at camp as early as 8 AM.
During early drop-off, campers will first meet their instructor at their group sign where check-in will begin. Campers will meet other group members and parents have the opportunity to talk to their child's instructor about their week of camp as needed. After campers have been signed-in, they will join other Early Drop campers in group games that break the ice, foster friendships and keep them engaged before camp starts. Campers also get extra time to prepare for the day ahead, ask questions and share what they are excited for!
Aftercare in Central & East Coast Camps
Hours: 3:00-6:00 PM, M-F
What Happens in Aftercare
Aftercare is conveniently onsite at the drop-off location where your camper’s day begins.
During aftercare, campers will join a welcome circle each day after camp has ended where they might share the highlight of their day, a new friend they have made, or gratitude that they have. Next, there will be activity stations set up (there will always be one dynamic or movement station and one static or seated station available) that kiddos get to choose from which change daily.
If the group for a given week is larger, more stations will be added with art or science themes. Stations are designed to provide options for all children to find activities that keep them engaged, learning and having fun. During the Aftercare session, there will also be outdoor activity time for a chance to mix things up!
