We have assigned drop-off times beteween 8:00 am and 10:00 am on Friday, June 9th and Friday, July 7th. These windows are assigned by camper last name. Please arrive at Camp during your assigned window of time (camp is in the central time zone), and you’ll be greeted at the gates by Camp Staff to tell you exactly where to go and what to do next.
Schedule Drop-Off Times
- 8:00 - 8:30 arrival A - F

These times have been assigned in order to equally spread out the number of cars arriving each hour. Thank you for sticking to your assigned arrival time so that we can get everyone settled in smoothly and efficiently.
Keeping In Touch
Sarah, Phil, and Marsha will be so excited to greet you as you drive in the gates. Camp DeSoto is our home, and it is our deepest joy to welcome you, and especially your daughter, to this place we love.
While our hello may be brief this year, we still want the opportunity to address any concerns you might have, from separation jitters to cabin issues. You are welcome to call or email us anytime throughout the month - and especially in those first few days after drop-off.
If you have any questions ahead of time, we’d love to talk you through it. Call the camp office and we’ll be happy to answer any questions you have.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
Closing Day just might be your favorite day of the year as you reunite with your camper after a month apart!
Camp pick-up is usually between 8 - 10 am on Closing Day. When you arrive, you will be greeted at the gates by Camp Staff who will explain the pick-up process and where to park. Your camper will meet you at her cabin after we dismiss from breakfast, and you can pack up the car together. She’ll have everything packed except her medicines, which you can pick up from the medical tent on your way out of Camp.
Campers who are flying home will be taken to the airport by Camp Staff, who will assist them with baggage check and security. A Camp Staff member will wait with the girls until every camper’s flight has departed. We’ll be in touch with you about the details of your camper’s travel a few days before Camp ends.
