PICK UP / DROP OFF
CAN I PICK UP MY CHILD EARLY?
To ensure the safety of all campers, we discourage early pick-up. High Five is from 9:00 AM to 12:30 PM. Please schedule other camps, lessons, and appointments outside of camp hours.
HOW DO I DROP OFF MY PRESCHOOL CHILD?
Check-in your camper at the registration table in the main lobby, and we will direct you to their drop-off location.
HOW DO I DROP OFF MY GRADE SCHOOL CHILD?
Check-in your camper at the registration table in the main lobby, walk them to their team’s zone, and we will take it from there!
HOW DO I PICK UP MY FULL-DAY CHILD?
We are very vigilant to make sure every child leaves with the right adult! When you arrive for pick-up, a member of the High Five team will check your driver’s license and verify that you are on the approved pick-up list for that child (list created during online registration). After verification, you will receive a card with your child’s name on it and enter the pick-up line. Before you leave the pick-up area with your child, a member of the High Five team will verify that your card and your child’s wristband match.
HOW DO I PICK UP MY PRESCHOOL CAMPER?
Preschool campers will remain in their classroom for pick-up. A member of the High Five team will check your driver’s license and verify you are on the approved pick-up list for that child.
HOW DO I GET MY KIDS’ T-SHIRTS?
T-shirt pick-up weekends are June 18 and June 25 in the Children’s Ministry area after each service. If you miss a pick-up, no problem. T-shirts will also be available on the first day of High Five.
WHAT IF MY CHILD LOSES SOMETHING OR NEEDS TO CHANGE THEIR CLOTHES?
This is a normal occurrence at High Five. We have a lost and found table in the Lobby. Please label all items to help us better keep track of each camper’s belongings. We also strongly suggest you send your child in with nothing of value. They get dirty, and their clothes and shoes may never be the same.
WHAT SHOULD MY CHILD WEAR?
Your child should wear their High Five t-shirt, shorts, and comfortable shoes. Everything gets dirty, stained, and worn out this week. Please do not send your child in anything you love. This is camp and they play hard.
HOW DO YOU CARE FOR MY CHILD WITH ALLERGIES?
Note your child’s allergies when registering. All allergies are reviewed by our camp medical team. Every leader is notified of your child’s allergies and will make sure to prepare any necessary alternate ingredients or activities. Campers with allergies will also have an allergy wristband.
Allergy-friendly snacks will be provided and communicated to all parents prior to the start of camp. Changes and accommodations can be made if needed.
Our camp medical team will be able to support any medical needs, including keeping allergy medications and/or Epi-Pens in a safe area and administering them, if needed.
I NEED TO CONTACT STAFF DURING THE WEEK
Email Amy at [email protected] to contact us during camp hours. She will be checking emails hourly during the week of camp.
What procedures do you have in place to ensure my child is safe at High Five?
We have a member of our medical team on site at all times to handle medical needs. All adult volunteers have a current background check and complete mandatory training to ensure they comply with safety protocols. Adults are never permitted to be alone with a child. Campers use the child-only bathroom, while adult and student volunteers use a separate one. We work very hard to ensure your child will be safe and that you feel comfortable entrusting them to us for the week.
