Welcome to Camp & Carpool


All confirmed campers will receive a Welcome Packet the week of May 22, 2017.  This packet will have information reminders, nametags, room assignments, and your carpool tag.







Your camper has been assigned a carpool number.  This number allows our staff to recognize you as a camp parent and appropriately get your camper unloaded and loaded during carpool.  Your carpool tag must clearly be displayed when entering the parking deck.  Always hang your carpool tag from your rearview mirror.  Keep it displayed during the entire carpool process.




Children are unloaded and loaded from the driver’s side back door only but not over the driver and not through the driver’s door.  We cannot unload or load any children from the rear end of the car (station wagon, hatchback, or utility vehicle).




You must notify the camp director no later than 11am the day of with any carpool changes.  Notification must be made by email to, riseandshine@northsideumc.org subject line as CARPOOL CHANGE.  Please include the name of the person authorized to pick up your child.  For your child’s protection, we will not put him/her in a car without a camp carpool tag.




The safety of your children is a priority; therefore, please be aware of the following additional requirements:





  1. Camper’s in Rooms C, D, E, F, G & H must be dropped off in morning carpool.

  6. Do not allow your child to stand up through sun-roofs or hang out open windows while in carpool line.





If you arrive after 9:05am, you must park in the parking deck and walk your child in.  Each camp class will have a rotation schedule outside their door to inform you of their current location.
