Will everyone be UP All Night?

  • Because some people may want to go to bed at 9:00pm, and some could stay UP All Night, we have to set a limit. "Lights out" will be at 9:15pm. While you don’t have to go to sleep by 9:15pm, please be respectful of our Amherst neighbors and the other campers who might be ready to call it a night and keep the noise to a minimum.

What's the policy on alcohol?

  • Please remember that this is a family activity and that the camp out is taking place on school grounds. To alleviate the possibility of a problematic situation, we ask you NOT to bring alcoholic beverages. We will have UP Police patrolling the area all day and night for security purposes.  No smoking allowed at the park or on school grounds.

Can Mom come eat with us

  • Please remember that the amount of food planned for the event is based on the number of registered adults and children. Therefore, you must be a registered camper (with a wristband) to participate in the dinner and breakfast options.

Where I go to use the restroom and/or wash my hands

  • Campers and volunteers will be able to use two sets of indoor restrooms inside the school building (accessible by the doors on the north and south side of the school by the gym), as well as several portable restroom facilities located on the UP field and playground area. Portable restroom facilities will also be available during the activities period (3:00pm-7:00) at Curtis Park. Each portable restroom facility will have a hand washing station and hand sanitizer available. One set of the indoor restrooms will close at 9:15pm for “lights out.) After that time, there will be one restroom available indoors as well as several portable facilities on the UP campus.

We look forward to camping with you soon!
