SADI Participants

DAY CAMP INFORMATION

While a majority of Summer Arts and Design Intensive stay in the dormitories during the program, we do have a number of day campers from the local area every year. This page provides information to help day campers and their parents understand the procedures for dropping off and picking up their campers.

SUNDAY CHECK-IN

Day campers should report to the lobby of the Gatewood Studio Arts Center between 2:00 pm and 4:00 p.m., park in the ground parking lot next to the building, on the first evening (Sunday) of SADI. Campers should bring their completed medical form. Dinner will be served at the UNCG Dining Hall from 4:00 pm to 5:30 pm. Campers will participate in the SADI orientation at 5:30 pm and the first studio class starting at 6:00 pm in the Gatewood Studio Arts Center.

DROPPING OFF CAMPERS DURING THE WEEK

Day campers should arrive at their classroom no later than 9:00 a.m. Monday thru Friday, but should arrive at the Dining Hall by 7:45 a.m. if they would like to eat breakfast (which you’ve already paid for).

PICKING UP CAMPERS SUNDAY THRU THURSDAY

Parents should plan to pick up their campers at 9:15 p.m. on Sunday thru Thursday evenings at the lobby of the Gatewood Studio Arts Center. An art education counselor will escort your camper each night and wait there until your camper is picked up.

PICKING UP CAMPERS ON FRIDAY

The campers’ parents, family, and friends are invited to the closing art exhibition celebrating the campers’ artistic exploration and creative outcomes. The art exhibition will be held at the Gatewood Gallery starting at 6 pm. We will conclude the art exhibition and the closing reception at 7 pm. Parents should plan to pick up their campers, the artwork, all other belongings at 7:15 pm.

Dinner will be served at the UNCG Dining Hall @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm.

CARPOOLING AND RIDING WITH SOMEONE OTHER THAN A PARENT

We certainly understand that groups of students from the same neighborhood or school would like to ride to and from camp together each day as a matter of convenience. If your camper is carpooling or someone besides a parent will pick up a day camper, you should notify the camp staff at the Sunday check-in table in writing. Once the camp staff is informed, we can notify the escort counselors so that your camper goes home with the right person.

If there is an emergency during the week and your camper needs to be picked up by someone else or at a different time, give us an email at uncgsummerartcamp@gmail.com
