Parent Pick Up and Drop Off

Parents may also transport day campers to and from Joy El Camps & Retreats personally. Campers should arrive at 8:45 AM and be picked up at 4:30 PM Monday to Thursday and pick up is at 4:00 on Friday.

Late pick up and drop off policy: Please be on time to pick up your child. The bus will wait 5 minutes after all other campers have been picked up by parents and then any children whose parents have not arrived will remain on the bus as it travels to other bus stops. Unclaimed children will end up back at camp where parents can pick them up at the camp office.
