Drop Off and Pick up

Enter Thunderbird Academy off of Sutton Road (one street south of Thunderbird) turning north into the school property. At the stop sign, turn right towards the gym. Drop off and pick up is located at the gym.

Every Monday morning, we ask all parents to park and walk their child into camp to meet the staff. All other mornings and every afternoon we provide a “kiss and go” drop off/pick up. The times of “kiss and go” are from 8:20-8:40am and 3:30-3:45. If you arrive at any other time, please park and walk to the gym to pick up your camper.

Half day campers will be picked up in the gym at 12:00pm.

The camp phone number is 602-432-9940.
