It's Camp Time: Things to Know


  1. Read over the FAQ's. There is information about what to pack, what to leave home, and everything in between.
  2. Sunday drop off is between 3:00-4:30pm. Friday pick up is between 3:00-5:00pm. We will be staying in Douthit Hill East. When you are dropping your scholar Sunday afternoon and picking up on Friday afternoon, please come to Parking Lot R-9, 107 Barre St, Clemson, SC 29631.
  3. We will eat breakfast, lunch and dinner in McAlister Dining Hall (The Fresh Food Company). You can even check out the menu in advance to see what is offered by selecting the date of interest. In the event that we are on a field trip, lunch will be catered to the location.

  5. All course requirements are also listed on your specific course website. You can check your specific class's page for more information. Just click on your scholar's specific course and read through the course description.
  6. Bring prescription medicine and only absolutely necessary over the counter pills & supplies (only bring medications and medical supplies listed on your medical form).  Please print our camp medical form (PDF), complete, and bring completed form on the first day of camp.
