Arrival and Departure
Camper Check-In (Arrival)
Upon your arrival at Aldersgate, follow the signs and guidance of our summer staff. They'll direct you up the path to check-in. You will follow the gravel loop drive for both check-in and drop-off. You will be able to stay in your car throughout the process. Plan to say your goodbyes while in the car. Our staff counselors will help your camper get settled. If you want to get out of the car and help them to their cabin or cottage, you are able to do so. We ask if you choose to do this, that you pull out of the car line to keep the traffic flowing and that you limit your time so camps can to engage with all we have in store for their week. We will stagger arrival times based upon camper grades; however, we'll also make accommodations for those families sending multiple campers to different age camps.
