Permit Weekend FAQ

How do I sign my child out?
If a camper is going on permit, he/she must sign out at the correct designated location below based on his/her unit:

Logansport Gate: Deck 1, 2, 3, 4 and 7
Eppley Auditorium Drive (backside loop): Deck 5 and 6
Main Guard/Sally Port: All Naval, Horsemanship, and Aviation Units
Woodcraft Library: All Woodcraft Girls (Butterflies and Cardinals)
Penske Building Parking Lot: All Woodcraft Boys (Cubs and Beavers)

Can my child go on permit with another family?
With proper authorization, your child may leave campus with another family or you have the option of taking your child’s friend on permit.
Authorized adults must be added as "Trusted Contacts" in the Campdocs system prior to permit day. The “Trusted Contacts” link is on the parent’s dashboard in Campdocs, which you can access by logging into your account on the Summer Parent Portal here. Any person dropping off a camper or picking up a camper, at the start, during, or end of camp, must be added as a “Trusted Contact” in order for them to go on permit with that person.

If you know your child will be going on permit with another family, please take a moment to update your account. Families will not be able to add authorized adults during permit weekend checkout.
Permit Guidelines
  • It is imperative that our campers are well fed and properly hydrated during permit time. Please refrain from greasy foods and soft drinks.

  • Campers may swim, sail, or participate in any boating or water activity only when under the immediate supervision of their own parents/guardians.

  • Campers must leave and return in their full dress uniform. Campers are expected to remain in uniform while they are on permit. They must be supervised the entire time while on permit and must be returned to their units promptly at the end of permit time.
