Opening and Closing Days

A time to renew old friendships, make new ones...

Opening Day

Opening day for SPIRIT sports camp always begins on a Sunday. Campers arrive between 1:00 and 3:00 p.m. Signs are posted at the Ethel Walker School campus to direct you to the main entrance for registration.

During registration, campers sign-in, provide any medications they may require and meet the camp nurse, receive a head lice check, turn in cell phones, and get their dorm assignments. Then they’re off to their dorms to unpack and meet their roommates. Families are welcome to visit their child’s room to help them unpack and to tour the campus. Your child’s Staff Advisor and the Camp Director will be available to meet with you and share an overview of the camp with you during this time.

Families and parents are welcome to depart once their camper has unpacked and settled in. Activities for campers who have arrived early begin at 2:00pm with all camp activities beginning at 3:00pm. Shortly afterward, the camp Directors meet with everyone and kick-off the start of a session. Each camper will meet her Advisor, as well as the other girls in her advisee group, and the activities to meet new campers will begin.

Closing Day

On the last day of camp, we welcome parents and families to join us as we wrap up lessons learned, say good bye to friends, and end the session.

Our schedule for closing day...

After the campers have breakfast, they attend practices from 9:00-11:00am. Parents and families are welcome to arrive anytime after 9:00am and observe the girls during shortened versions of a few practice sessions.

While cheering your daughter on, you can also meet other parents, greet their newly made camp friends, and squeeze in a conversation with your daughter's advisor.

From 11:15 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., we have lunch and a farewell address. Weather permitting, the Ethel WalkerSchool cooking staff prepares and serves us a delicious cookout outside the dining hall on a hill overlooking the campus.

Note: Families who stay for Parents' Day need to make a lunch reservation when completing their final camp forms.

Campers depart between 1:00 and 2:00 p.m. The actual time each camper leaves often depends on the number of items they have yet to pack and how long it takes them to say goodbye to their new found friends.
