Camper pick-up/drop-off parking is available in the Kleman Plaza parking garage or at metered street spots.

Please note: you could be ticketed or towed for parking at the U.S. Post Office or in the loading zone on College Ave.
Camps are designed for the enjoyment and benefit of all campers enrolled. Our goal is to be educational as well as entertaining and campers are expected to abide by camp rules. With that as the objective, we anticipate that no camper is here who does not want to be here. Should any disciplinary problems occur, camp staff will contact the parent/guardian to discuss the child’s behavior, possible remediation and/or picking up their camper. Please do not send any toys, books, electronic devices, etc. with the camper unless approved by a camp counselor. If items from home are brought, they may only be used during extended care, lunch and recess. The CLC is not responsible for lost/stolen/broken items brought from home.
