Camp programs are based at the Waynflete School campus (360 Spring Street in Portland) or Waynflete’s Fore River Campus (183 Osgood Street in Portland). Check the website program description to determine the location of your child’s program.
Waynflete’s Main Campus
360 Spring Street, Portland
Drop Off: Campers may arrive between 8:00 and 8:30 a.m. at the Thomas House Loop at 360 Spring St. EC Campers should be dropped off in the EC Camp classroom between 8:30 and 9:00 a.m.
For Campers in EC Flyers and K-1 Camps: Please park your car on a surrounding street and walk your camper to their classroom in the Lower School. On the first day of each session, counselors will help direct families to the appropriate location. If we have contacted you about outstanding bills or incomplete paperwork, please visit the Camp Office (in the center of the Lower School lobby) after dropping off your child.
Pickup: Campers will be ready for pickup, lined up in their camps in the Thomas House Loop, at the close of their program (times for individual programs are listed on the website). You may park on a surrounding street or pull up to the waiting line of campers to connect with your child’s group. Please ensure your child has checked out with their counselor before leaving (a high-five will suffice).
If you use the drive-by pickup in the Thomas House Loop, wait until you get to the front of the line for staffers to escort your camper to your car. Please avoid parking or idling on the street.
Please wait your turn in the line of cars. Do not pass cars in front of you.
If you must arrive for pickup earlier than 15 minutes before the end of your child’s program, park on a surrounding street and walk to campus to connect with your child’s group. Cars arriving early block the bus and cause unnecessary congestion in our residential neighborhood.
We invite you to check in with your child’s counselor or Program Director at the end of the day but please allow them time to safely account for the authorized dismissal of the entire group before speaking with you.
Waynflete Fore River Campus
183 Osgood Street, Portland
Drop Off: Campers may arrive between 8:45 and 9:00 a.m.
In subsequent days you may continue to park and walk your camper to greet the group or use the horseshoe driveway, dropping your child in front of the field house to be greeted by our staff and escorted to the appropriate group.
Pickup: Campers will be ready for pickup, lined up by group near the horseshoe driveway, at the close of their program (times for individual programs are listed on the website). Drive-through pickup is one-way through the parking lot. Please wait in your car, in line, and we will bring your child to you. We do not want campers walking through the parking lot. You may also park in the parking lot and walk to meet your child’s group. Please ensure your child has checked out with a counselor before leaving with you (a high-five will suffice).
We invite you to check in with your child’s counselor or coach at the end of the day, but please allow them time to safely account for the authorized dismissal of the entire group before speaking with you.
Safety is Our Primary Concern
The Waynflete campus and Waynflete’s Fore River Fields are part of residential communities and the arrival and departure of more than 100 children each day has a significant impact on each of the neighborhoods. The school strives to maintain a safe and friendly environment for students and neighbors during drop-off and pickup times. You can help us by avoiding things like blocking driveways, parking too close to intersections, and speeding. Please drive slowly, park legally, and obey all city parking signs and regulations at all times.
