Check-out is from 8:30-10 am for all sessions, no matter what day the session ends.
Please do not arrive at camp before your child’s session check-out time as the gate will be closed.
When the gate opens, you will enter camp, park your car and reunite with your camper by returning to the cabin in which they were assigned. If you arrive right away, please wait for your camper to receive his or her camp picture, class card (a fun keep-sake signed by the instructors of the activities your child took throughout their session), the remaining camp store money from their personal account, and a camp DVD if you decide to purchase one. After hugs and kisses, please sign out your child by showing the cabin counselor a valid ID (the individual checking out your child must be authorized on their Camper Release Form…regardless if the individual is the immediate parent or guardian, relative, family friend or sibling.)
Note: a child will not be released to ANY individual that is not given authorization on the form or has a valid ID to prove their identity.
Once you have signed your child out with their cabin counselor, please assist them in gathering their belongings from their bunk and cubby (assigned space for campers within the cabins). Be sure to have them check under their bunk, the numerous shelves within their cabin, the clothesline outside their cabin and the designated “Lost and Found” area (the picnic table by the store) for any forgotten or misplaced belongings.
If your child came to camp with medication, be sure to pick it up from our Camp Health Officer at our medical building (The Med Shed). There will be a pancake and sausage breakfast being served in the dining lodge until 9:30 am for campers and the individuals checking them out. This is a great time to hear all about the fun your child had during their session and a wonderful opportunity to meet some Wakeshma staff members! The Camp Store will be open for clothing purchases during check-out (only cash and check accepted). There will be a designated area where donations for staff appreciation will be greatly accepted to reward our hard-working staff with an end of the summer party!
If you leave behind any belongings, please make arrangements with the Camp Director to pick them up from camp before the end of our summer season.
