PICK UP

Parents/guardians may pick up campers between 4:00 pm and 4:30 pm at the Drop Off/Pick Up circle. For the safety and security of your child, only persons designated by you will be allowed to pick up your child from camp. Submit an Authorized Pick Up form with all of the names and phone numbers of those authorized to pick your child up from TERP Quest. If you wish to add someone, you must complete a supplemental form and submit it to the camp. For the safety of your child, same day requests will not be honored. Please allow 24 hours to have a new authorized pick up person added to your campers approved list. AT ALL TIMES, we will need to see a photo ID in order to release a camper. Having your ID ready will expedite the pickup process. Please be patient as we bring the campers to their cars. Their safety is the #1 concern at TERP Quest.
If you would like to pick up your camper before 3:45 pm, kindly make arrangements with the Assistant Director 24 hours in advance by sending an email to jhess2@umd.edu or mmires@umd.edu or by calling 301-226-4409. We will have your camper at the Information Desk of the ERC and ready to go at the appointed time for early departure. If you are more than 10 minutes late, your child will be returned to their activity group.

When picking your child up early, you will need to park in the numbered spaces adjacent the Eppley Recreation Center, go to the parking kiosk and enter the necessary information to get a FREE 15 MINUTES (follow directions on the PARKING tab) of parking OR pay the meter fee, and proceed to the Information Desk at the Eppley Recreation Center.
