Opening & Closing Day

Opening Day

Opening Day is full of excitement. Campers and parents are given a warm welcome by our directors and staff.

On Opening Day of Junior Camp, camp gates will open at 8:00 AM CDT and drop off is 8:00 AM - Noon CDT. Upon your arrival at camp, you will be given your son’s cabin assignment and will be directed to his cabin where his counselors will be waiting for you. They will help you unload your son’s luggage. You will also be given other detailed check-in information.

On Opening Day of First and Second Terms, camp gates will open at 9:30 AM and drop off is 9:30 AM - Noon CDT. Upon your arrival at camp, you will be given your son’s cabin assignment and will be directed to his cabin where his counselors will be waiting for you. They will help you unload your son’s luggage. You will also be given other detailed check-in information.

Once the drop off period closes, Glenn conducts an orientation meeting for campers, then it’s time for Miss Gail’s wonderful chicken and biscuit lunch! There are other housekeeping items to finish on opening day — a health check by our camp doctor, knitwear is distributed, activity lists are handed out. Dinner and night activities round out the day.

Closing Day

Camp gates open at 7:30 am CDT for all terms on Closing Day. Pick up is from 7:30 am to 11:00 am CDT.

You are always welcome to drive directly to your son’s cabin where he will be waiting for you. His counselors will help you load his luggage into your vehicle. Feel free to let your son give you a tour of all his favorite spots in camp.

If your time allows, plase stop and meet the directors in front of the Dining Hall for an informal director’s reception. We love getting to meet and catch up with all our Alpine parents.

Any Alpine camper who will be riding home with someone other than his parent or legal guardian must provide written permission to the camp office.
