MORNING DROP OFF: We meet in the parking lot of Camp Nihan, which is the first large space you will hit as you enter the long dirt driveway. We will run check in from 7:45am-8:15am, so that there is space for all cars to safely drop off and pick up. For the safety of all, please drive 5mph and wait in the parking lot for pick up and drop off. If you will be later than 8:15am, you can bring your child to the picnic tables inside the camp (continue to follow the dirt road), but please be extra careful as we may be at play along the road. If you will be later than 9am any day, please call the Camp Director, Lisa, at 617-461-1053 so we can arrange a meeting spot (texting is best). We hike, swim, and play games on other parts of the camp, so we'll meet up based on your time of arrival. And same goes if you need to leave early; please let us know so we can plan a meeting time and place.

For full day campers, we will bring campers to parking lot area at 3:45pm and check out continues until 4:15pm. Again, this window of time for dismissal is so that there is space for all cars to safely drop off and pick up.
