Drop Off/Pick Up


The first day of camp is exciting for both campers and parents. But the process can make some parents and campers anxious as they wait to learn their cabin assignment. You can anticipate the process taking at least one hour. To make your check-in a pleasant one, please use the following procedures:

  • Check-in begins on Friday evening at 6:00 pm (except for the July session, which begins at 12:00 pm on Saturday). Please arrive between 10-11 am. Please do not arrive early because there are other programs at camp during the day.
  • When you arrive at Camp Christopher, you may drive to the St. Francis Dining Hall to unload your vehicle.
  • Campers must sign in with the Program Director at the St. Francis Dining Hall and deposit luggage in the hall.
  • Campers requiring medication (prescription & non-prescription) must turn in their medication(s) to the nurse upon arrival (in the same hall). All medications must be in their original bottles with clearly labeled, current prescription/instructions.
  • Once all campers have arrived, staff will provide assistance carrying luggage and making beds in the cabins. Individuals or caregivers may make their child’s bed if they prefer.
  • Caregivers are encouraged to share any special concerns when they drop off their camper.
  • We do not permit saving bunks. Campers secure bunks on a first come, first served basis.
  • Make your goodbyes quick and positive.


  • Pick-up on Sunday by 11:00 am. Please return to the hall to receive your family member and pick up luggage.
  • We recommend that you check your child’s luggage at pick-up to ensure that he or she is coming home with everything that you packed that week.

If you require assistance during registration or pick-up due to disability, please contact our offices, and arrangements will be made to accommodate your needs.

Please remember, there are no pets allowed at Camp Christopher regardless of size.

“As Christians, we must be generous. That is the Lord’s call to us, and I would suggest that Catholic Charities is the best way we can be generous with the blessings the Lord has given to us.”
