Swim Camp Opening & Closing

Opening Day

Pre-Opening Activities (1:45pm - 2:30pm):

Expect a lot of energy when you arrive Sunday afternoon starting at 1:45pm.  You will be welcomed on the perimeter road with a parking crew pointing the way.

Once you drive under the T Bar M gate,  our staff will greet you at your car and inform you  what cabin your camper(s) are in, how we will handle your camper's luggage and where you should park.

Once parked, you will be instructed to head to the Sports Center.   Different from prior years, you are welcome to enjoy activities on the fields and even head on back to your camper's cabin and meet their Coach. You will see several special stations along the way. Be sure to stop at stations that apply to you. And don't fret if you don't make it back to the cabin before the formal ceremony begins at 2:30pm ... there will be plenty of time afterwards to your camper get settled in their cabin.

  • First-time Campers (get your green beads) located in the Front Yard.
  • Headed to Camp Travis? (for parents with teens going to Camp Travis)
  • Camp Store (for purchases & adding money to camper's Store Account) located in the Sports Center.
  • Camp Nurse (for those that need to drop off meds) located in the Sports Center.
  • Mail Drop-off (remember, all mail must fit into a 10x13 envelope ... no boxes please) located in the Sports Center.
  • Information (how can we help you?) located in the Sports Center.

Camp's Official Opening (2:30pm): Campers and their families will be directed to the Sports Field where they will meet their Coach and new cabin mates.  

Ultimate Swim Camp Breakout Opens (2:40pm): This will be your opportunity to meet and talk with Coaches Josh, Dan and Caroline, as well as the Coaches (counselors) who will be investing in your child during the week. Moms and Dads are welcome to help get their campers settled into their cabin at that time.

Closing Day

Before 8:20am - Arrive at Camp (you don't want to be late for the 8:30am events!): A parking crew will be there to point you in the right direction.  Don't worry about the luggage ... we have a team that will help you load it later.   Just come on in and get ready to be reunited with your camper.  You will be directed to The Sanctuary at 8:30am. If you need a restroom break, stop by the Sports Center before heading back to The Sanctuary ... the big log structure at the side of the Sports Field.

8:30am: Head back to The Sanctuary for Team Meeting!

8:45am - Cabin Huddle: This is the time when Coaches and campers relive the week's adventure!
