Traditional Camp

Check-in: Sundays at 4:30 PM
  • If you would like to arrive a little early we will be having a barbeque in the lodge. You are welcome to join us and have a chance to meet the camp staff before check-in begins.
  • Arriving before 3:30 pm will only increase your wait time and is discouraged.
  • Cabin assignments will be given out starting at 4:30 pm on check-in day.

Please note that check-in involves important preparations to ensure your child’s stay at camp is successful!  Our goal is to move you through the process as quickly as possible, in under an hour. However, it can take longer, depending on how many campers arrive on a given day.  Steps include checking in upon arrival, head checks, a visit with the health supervisor to discuss any medications, checking in at the cabin and meeting staff.  Each child’s health and time at camp is important to us, so please allow adequate time to ensure your child is all set.

Please make sure to have the required camp forms filled out and returned to the camp office at least six weeks before your arrival.  You will need to bring the Camp Admission Card with you to check-in.

Check out: Fridays at 5:30 PM
 

We welcome you to join us Friday evenings for Camp Roger’s Dog Tag Ceremony. Parents are invited to attend the closing ceremonies to share in and experience the magic of camp. The Dog Tag Ceremony will run from 5:30 pm until 6:30 pm. 

If you are unable to arrive early for any of the evening activities please ensure that you arrive by 6:30 pm to pick up your camper.

Friday Family Programming includes:
  • 5:30 - Dog Tag award ceremony to recognize camper accomplishments
  • 6:30 - Check-out at the cabin with your camper's counselors
  • Opportunity for your child to introduce you to all their new friends and favorite counselors
  • Opportunity for parents to feel the joy that their child has experienced at Camp Roger

With the new schedule, parents can arrive at any time between 5:30 pm and 6:30 pm on Friday. There is still van/bus service available to return the campers to Salt Lake for a fee of $30 if that's more convenient (pre-registration required).

For the Family Friday Dog Tag Ceremony, a staff member will greet you in the parking lot and direct you to the festivities.

Check-out occurs between 6:30 - 7:00 pm at your camper's cabin, at that time you and your camper will report to the counselor to sign out the camper.  Please do not depart with your children early.
