Student Pick-up and Drop-off

You can drop off your camper starting at 8:30 a.m. SJW staff will be on hand at the parking lot loop nearest Braun Music Center to check in and supervise students as they arrive. Giant Steps Day Camp begins promptly each day with an all-camp meeting at 9:00 a.m. in Campbell Recital Hall. 

If your child will arrive later than 9:00 a.m. please call the SJW office  to let us know their anticipated time of arrival.

You can pick up your camper once Giant Steps Day Camp classes end at 3:00 p.m. each day. If you can’t pick up your child by 3:00 p.m., you may opt for the late pick-up plan. SJW staff will supervise students from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. Monday – Thursday for a fee of $150 for the entire week. If you choose the late pick-up option, you may pick up your child by coming into the Braun Music Center.

Giant Steps Day Camp lunch options

To keep your camper well-fed, you may choose the lunch plan which provides a box lunch prepared each day by the Stanford Coffee House (CoHo), or you may opt to have your child bring a sack lunch from home. Box lunches from the CoHo include a sandwich, fruit, chips, and a cookie. Vegetarian and vegan options are available. 

Giant Steps Day Camp Showcase

Giant Steps Day Camp culminates in the Showcase on Friday afternoon, July 12, 2024. Campers will celebrate everything they’ve learned during the week by putting on a concert for friends, family, and other campers. The concert is in Dinkelspiel Auditorium in Braun Music Center from 4:30 – 6:00 p.m.

Friends and family members are invited to attend this free concert. We encourage you to take photos and to make video recordings of the showcase.
