Camper Drop Off and Pick up will be in the Northeast corner of the East Remote Parking Lot. There is an entrance to the walking path that leads up to the East Field House. On Mondays, look for the Sammy Slug Summer Camp banner and brightly colored flags to show you the way. There will be a check-in table and camp staff to greet the campers. Parking is free between 7:30-9:00am and from 5:00-6:30pm in the East Remote Parking Lot. If you wish to stay longer, please purchase a parking permit or you may receive a parking violation. Permit information is available on the UCSC Transportation and Parking Services (TAPS) website:

ID and Pick Up Policies
You must bring your driver’s license or valid picture ID to pick up your child. If someone other than you will be picking up your child, please complete a "Change to Authorization List for Camper Pick Up" form and notify them that they too will need an ID. This form will also be available at camp check-in.  This policy is in place for your child's safety and we appreciate your compliance and understanding.

Visitor Policies and Passes
Family members and/or personnel authorized to enter camp space and/or pick up campers will be asked to sign in at the OPERS Facility Center or at the Wellness Center front desk. There they will sign a waiver and receive a visitor name tag which they must wear.

Check in on Monday morning each week will be at the top of the hill above the parking lot. We will be checking in the campers, handing out their T-Shirts and giving them their name-tags. The home base of the camp is the Activities Room and Multi-Purpose Room. If you miss check-in, you will need to park and walk your camper up to the Wellness Center entrance and bring them to the Activities Room. The Activities Room and Multi-Purpose Room are located near the Tennis Courts at the East Field. There will be ample directional signage to point you and your camper there. The Activity Room and Multi-Purpose Room will be our home base for all the camp sessions.

Our expectation is that all campers will be picked up on time. However, if you are going to be late to pick up your camper at the end of the day, please call the Sammy Slug Summer Camp Office at 831-459-4159 or mobile at 831-359-7994.
