Driver’s please note: if your directions do not take you to Road Between the Ponds, your information may be incorrect. Do not drive down Pine Ridge Road, instead look for the Girl’s Camp sign off “Road Between the Ponds”. Please also note that GPS does not work at times due to internet connection issues. Print directions before leaving. Please call us for assistance at (207) 625-8221.
If you are providing the transportation for your camper, please plan to drop-off your child between 12pm - 1pm (please do not arrive early as staff are busy prepping camp for an amazing experience for your camper and gates will be locked) and pick-up your child promptly on Departure Day at 10am.
Arranging Your Transportation
You will indicate your transportation choice (Drop-off or charter bus) in the online parent center when you enroll. While many parents will drop their child off at camp, we do offer bus transportation alternatives. If no transportation is scheduled in the parent center the camper will be automatically listed as a car drop off and pick up. All changes in transportation must be made in writing, emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
No child will be permitted to leave camp with anyone other than their parent or guardian without written consent from their parent or guardian. Consent can be provided through the parent center.
Communication Regarding Delays, Changes and Emergencies
If unforeseen circumstances may affect a scheduled pick-up or drop- off time or location, West End House Girls Camp staff will contact the primary cell phone listed for each camper that may be affected via text. If the text is not received a call will be made. If any kind of emergency occurs, all parents will be called on the primary cell phone listed for each camper that may be affected. If we cannot get a hold of the parent a voicemail will be left when possible and other phone numbers and/or email addresses may be called or emailed to ensure that updated information has been passed on.
