We will be updating this page with the schedule for virtual camp in the next few weeks. Please check back soon!
The First Day
The first day of camp (Sunday) is an important day for campers and staff. We spend time getting to know each other and start our team-building activities. After our first all-camp meeting, we eat dinner together and practice our class changing procedures. Day campers then go home to rest up for the next day's classes and activities. Residential campers end the day with an exciting and fun tug-of-war competition and then return to their dorms.
Sunday check-in: We're usually very busy getting ready right before registration, so we will not be able to check anyone in early. If you do arrive early, take a walk around campus or find a cool place to relax for a while.
Check-in time: 2:00–3:15 PM
Camp activities begin at 4:00 PM
Check-in time: 3:15–4:00 PM
Camp activities begin at 4:00 PM
Departure time: 9:00 PM
If you arrive late: There are usually staff members close by who can direct you to your colony group or you may find us in the cafeteria. If you think you may arrive after 4:00 PM, call our camp office at 336.740.0211.

Campers will need some spending money to purchase concessions ($25 max recommended) during the week. If you're camper plans to purchase concessions or a t-shirt from our Maker Mogul class, they are required to use the Camp Bank system. We will not be accepting cash at the concession tables this year (2018 change).
We will accept:
Checks must be payable to SERVE, Inc.
Cash ($1 & $5 bills please)
Camp Bank will be open for deposits at check-in and nightly before concessions. We can also accept additional money on a case by case basis. Please contact us if you have any questions.
Returning campers, please note the change? We won't have two separate lines.
If you wish to send your camper mail, please send it early enough to ensure it will be delivered while your camper is still on campus. You must include your camper's colony name in the address. Address camper mail in the following manner:
Camper's name & name of colony*
All-Arts & Sciences Camp
PO Box 26170
Greensboro, NC 27402
*You will get your camper's colony name at Sunday check-in.
Camp nurses will be on duty during Sunday registration to check in your camper's medication and/or to address any concerns you may have regarding your camper's health. Camp nurses are on duty 24 hours a day during camp sessions.
Parent Phone Calls and Visits
We feel it is in the best interest of campers and parents alike to restrict both visits and phone calls. If you wish to inquire about a camper's well-being or needs, leave a message for the camp director or the camp administrative assistant at 336.740.0211. Due to camp activities and the number of campers attending, it may take a while to get back in touch with you. However, we will respond immediately if it is an emergency.
Cell phones for campers are discouraged. Parents insisting that their camper have a cell phone at camp must sign the Cell Phone Policy Agreement at check-in.
Airport Pick-Up and Drop-Off
If you are considering flying your child to or from camp, please contact our registration team at 336.740.0211 to make arrangements for pick-up and/or drop-off after registering. NOTE: There is a $25 charge for transportation each way.
On Friday morning, the All-Arts, Sciences & Technology Camp Festival will be our concluding activity. Parents are encouraged to attend the festivities, which begin at 9:00 am with an Olympic-style parade. A multimedia show of the week's activities follows the parade. Following the slide show, parents will have the opportunity to see their children's work and meet the instructors. The program will end at or around 11:00 am, and the campers will be dismissed.
