Drop Off & Pick Up

Drop-Off / Pick-Up

Safety First! You will receive a placard on your first day to use for pick up and drop off—if you have multiple drivers,please let us know and we will provide additional placards and copies of this information. There are other programs located on our campus, so please note that these instructions are specifically for Summer at Sandy Spring.

For pick up, there’s no need to park! We will use our walkie-talkies to call your camper to the pickup area. If you need to pick your child up early, please contact the office no later than noon of that day. When you arrive, park in a designated parking space and walk in and sign your camper out in the Camp Office. Summer at Sandy Spring makes full use of our 140 acres, so it is important that you notify us in advance so that we can have your camper ready and waiting for you. So as not to interfere with afternoon carpool, we ask that early pick-ups be completed by 3:00pm.
