All campers not utilizing our airport/train shuttle – regardless of whether or not they have military ID – must check in between 2:00 and 3:00pm at the Navy/Marine Corps Football Stadium, located a few blocks from campus. Campers will enter via Gate 5 of the football stadium parking lot on Taylor Avenue (directions below). Please allow sufficient time to drive to Annapolis. On Sunday afternoons, the Bay Bridge from the Eastern Shore and the NJ Turnpike can have quite a bit of traffic.
At check-in, campers will receive their room number and turn in their medical form if not previously submitted. Campers will then board a shuttle with their luggage and will be dropped off at the dormitory for move-in. Campers need to be prepared to carry their luggage up or down stairs as campers are not allowed to use dormitory elevators. Parents/family members are welcome to ride the shuttle over with their camper and help them get settled in their room, but need to be prepared to board the final return shuttle at 3:15pm which will bring them back to their cars parked at the stadium. (Families with military ID are welcome to drive onto the Yard after checking in, but all campers must ride on our provided shuttle. We cannot guarantee parking on the Yard.)
For pick-up on Thursday, parents have the option to park at the football stadium and take the shuttle onto campus to the boathouse for the final ceremony at the end of camp. Parents will have the opportunity to meet up with their camper and view the boathouse prior to the start of the ceremony. Shuttles will leave from the football stadium (enter through Gate 5 like at check-in and park by Gates C/D) at 11:20am and 11:40am to drop parents off at the boathouse for the 12:00 ceremony, and then shuttle all campers, parents, and luggage back to the stadium at the conclusion of the ceremony. If parents are unable to arrive early enough to catch the shuttle to the boathouse, all campers will be taken out to the stadium for pick-up by 12:45PM. Campers will be supervised at the stadium and must be picked up no later than 1:00PM. Campers needing return transportation to BWI Airport or BWI Amtrak Station will leave the boathouse on a separate bus by no later than 12:45PM.
Please note that there is limited parking available at the boathouse which is needed for our staff and shuttles. Families with military ID are asked to please refrain from parking at the boathouse.
